TAKA and HimalayanAcademy.com
Now Served from Linode

taka is moving

All our websites have been running on a CentOS 6.2 web dedicated server in San Fransisco. We have moved all of these to Linode Cloud Servers in Fremont, California, running on the latest Ubuntu 14.04 LTS system on SSD drives. For the non-nerds amongst us, the web sites are going to get much faster! This transition requires that we not add any new content for several days while DNS propagates globally and the worlds domain system shifts to call the websites from the new service. If are seeing this you are already getting TAKA from the new server….The Big Bird has arrived. Stay tuned for updates.

Prime Minister Modi’s International Day of Yoga Site Launched

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi's new International Day of Yoga web site was officially launched in Paris on August 10th. The monks were contacted to contribute and you will find Himalayan Academy Publication's contribution in the "About --> Roots of Yoga" section where the Yamas and Niyamas are in focus with a link to our book Yoga's Forgotten Foundation.

PARIS, FRANCE, April 10, 2015 (Business Standard): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched a portal for the International Day of Yoga here, describing the ancient Indian spiritual practice as capable of awakening a sense of oneness. Flanked by UNESCO Director General Irena Bukova, Modi officially launched the http://www.Idayofyoga.Org website after addressing a gathering at the UNESCO headquarters that included a large number of NRIs.

In his UNESCO address, Modi called for a change in lifestyle "because the emission reduction that we seek will be the natural outcome of how we live. It is with this vision that I had called the United Nations General Assembly last September to declare June 21 as the International Day of Yoga. Yoga awakens a sense of oneness and harmony with self, society and nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change and create a more balanced world," Modi said. Check it out at www.IDayOfYoga.org/About/Roots of Yoga
