DHARMANIDHI YOGA PEETH
Yoga is a unique contribution to the world from our ancient culture. It is a Universal and evolutionary science which deals with philosophical as well as practical aspects of life. Yogic Sciences teach to lead a tensionless life with respect to body, mind and soul trinity, taking into cognisance the environment around. In modern days the techniques of Yogic Sciences are extremely useful for intellectual and blissful life.
Even though yoga was one of the most important subjects of study in our ancient schools of learning, but there is no modern university which teaches this science to study. In the present day life which is associated with full of stress and strain causing a number of psychosomatic diseases, yogic science occupies a special significance. Realising the fact, Mangalore University has started the “Dharmanidhi Yoga Peetha” in 1983 through a donation of Rs. 4.8 lakhs made by the Trustees of Hindu Temples of the then Dakshina Kannada district to establish three- fold activities in the field of Yoga; namely, teaching, therapy and research.
