Hindus laud City of Cambridge for yoga pictures on parking tickets envelopes

Hindus have welcomed City of Cambridge (Massachusetts, USA) idea of pictures of yoga moves on parking violation tickets envelopes.


Nevada (US), Sept 25 : Hindus have welcomed City of Cambridge (Massachusetts, USA) idea of pictures of yoga moves on parking violation tickets envelopes.

Eminent Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a release in Nevada (USA) today, said that it was wonderful that City of Cambridge was drawing the attention of residents and visitors towards yoga, a mental and physical discipline, which was referred as "a living fossil" and whose traces went back to around 2,000 BCE to Indus Valley civilization. According to Patanjali who codified it in Yoga Sutra, yoga was a methodical effort to attain perfection, through the control of the different elements of human nature, physical and psychical.

Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, further said that yoga was based on an eightfold path to direct the practitioner from awareness of the external world to a focus on the inner. According to National Institutes of Health, Yoga may help one to feel more relaxed, be more flexible, improve posture, breathe deeply, and get rid of stress.

Parking violation fines vary between $20 and $100 in Cambridge. David P. Maher is the Mayor while Susan Clippinger is Parking Department Director of Cambridge, popularly known as "City of Squares" and settled in 1630, which is home to internationally renowned Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Swami Vivekananda reportedly brought yoga to USA in 1893. According to an estimate, about 16 million Americans now do yoga.
