Goa, Ponda

Reported by Atul Arora

Our early morning visit to Tapobhumi ashram. Tapobhumi is a beautiful Ashram located in Kundai near Ponda city of Goa. It is a major centre for Vedic and Sanskrit learning in India.

We were greeted by a young group of students of the ashram and we presented our Peace Run event.

Many of these students reside at the ashram and have dedicated their life to gain Vedic knowledge and spirituality.

The students chanted Mantras and verses from Vedas to bless our Peace Run torch.

and we bless them with our World Harmony Run song with actions.
