KK Paul, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Sh. Trivendra Singh Rawat, Union Minister of Tourism, Sh. Alphons Kannanthanam and many more.
This edition of Yog festival was unique in its own way as it celebrated the golden jubilee year of the ‘The Beatles’ visit to Rishikesh, Uttarakhand. In February 1968, this legendary rock band came to Rishikesh, to learn transcendental meditation at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram, locally known as Chaurasi Kutia. That stint turned out to be one of the most creative periods in the group’s career. They wrote many songs and 17 of them were used in The Beatles (White Album) and two more in Abbey Road. To celebrate the 50 years of their visit, Uttarakhand Tourism Development Board had specially invited a mock Beatles band from London named ‘Fab Four’ to pay tribute to the iconic band. They performed from 4th to 6th March’2018, giving the guests a taste of Beatlemania.
International Yog Festival is a chance to connect with your inner self, to discover your true potential and to connect deeply with your own inner divine flow.
