Ac Shubhacetananda Avt. is a yoga instructor and student at the Richland Community College at Dallas. While taking different courses of journalism he has started 4 yoga clubs and introduced many students and faculty members to yoga, meditation and vegetarianism. Jinanesh (Glen Sovian) as president of the Yoga Clubs and student of the Community College has the plan to open more Yoga Clubs also at the University of Dallas as he sees so much benefit for so many people. Jay Wooldridge as the Richland Yoga Club advisor and Students Prgrams and Resources activities coordinator of the College participates to the yoga classes and he is ever present in all the initiatives like the Sierra Club who organized the Earth Day on the campus and planted 2000 trees around the campus itself.
In just a week, together with the margi of the Ananda Marga unit in Dallas they organized two vegetarian parties, participated to the Intercultural Festival, participated to the Earth day, propitiated two radio interviews and one open conference on the topic ” Life as a project”. Lot of attention was drawn for the visit of the Ananda Marga yogic monk Ac. Vimaleshananda Avt. that had the opportunity to be on the stage of the College several times together with Dada Shubhacetanananda demonstrating yoga postures and singing live. Several students got interested and came on the stage joining Dada and his friend in some cultural dances. During one of the vegetarian parties a student from Bangladesh found Dada performing a song in her Bengali language accompanied by the harmonium – a traditional Indian instrument. She could not believe it! At Brookhaven College as in the other colleges in Dallas students comes from all over the world and represent the most beautiful example of a universal society. After the vegetarian dinner the Yoga Club was invited to join another dinner organized by the Indonesian students. It is so wonderful to live in communion sharing so much diversity and culture and it is so nice that Ananda Marga is an integral part of it.
