We (I & my wife Sailasuta) have arrived in New York, U.S.A. on July 30, 2013 on Visitors` Visa & scheduled to stay here for the months of August and September 2013 with our second daughter Gayatri & son-in-law Saikrishna (on Working Visa status), grandson Arnav & granddaughter Maulika residing in this place.
Yoga has now become a very popular activity in the United States for last few decades. Yoga gained momentum in the U.S. during 19th Century CE after Swami Vivekananda travelled to U.S. With time several yoga masters visited U.S. from India and brought popularity to this discipline. The Hatha Yoga became the most popular form of Yoga based on basic features of yogasana and pranayama. Gradually the Patanjali`s yoga sutras of Ashtanga Yoga or Raja Yoga gained acceptance. It is ‘Shri Sai Satcharita’ published by Shri Sai Baba Sansthan Trust, Shirdi, Dist. Ahmednagar Maharashtra India, the biography of Sai Baba written by Hemadpant during the life time of Baba depicting his wonderful life and teachings that spread Sai Spirituality not only in India but in the whole World and there are a good number of Sai Baba temples in U.S.A. where Sai Baba is worshiped by Shirdi Sai devotees.
I have the strong notion that Yoga and Spirituality of Indian origin have become increasingly popular in U.S.A. basing on country wise blog stat of my blog Yoga and Spirituality for United States. Now, I will get the scope of physical assessment related to Yoga Practice and Sai Spirituality in U.S. during my stay here for two months.
