A leading spiritual teacher is in South Africa as part of a 32-year global tour to promote environmental awareness.
Dada Shiilabhadrananda, 64, a yoga instructor and social worker of the Ananda Marga, an international spiritual and social-service body, has toured the world since 1976 giving talks on the spiritual secrets of suc- cess and the benefits of positive environmental habits. He is visiting 35 countries and is the global co-ordi- nator for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Plants.
He has led several emergency relief operations dur- ing his 15-year tenure in sub-Saharan Africa, inclu- ding Ethiopian famine relief in 1984, and has also help- ed Indonesians affected by the 2004 earthquake and tsunami.
He said that his aim was to serve humanity and make people self-reliant. “We help them as best as possible, but only in the short term so that we don’t create a sense of dependency .”
Shiilabhadrananda leaves South Africa this week for Mozambique and later North Africa.
