Since both Meghan Markle and Prince Harry now reportedly practice yoga, many Hindus, led by Hindu leader Rajan Zed, are urging them to also visit a Hindu Temple to seek blessings sometime after their May 19 marriage at St. George’s Chapel.
Wishing the couple a happy future together, distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada yesterday, said that besides their love for Hinduism introduced-nourished yoga, Hindu Temple visit would also be a wonderful gesture in view of the growing diversity of United Kingdom.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that yoga, although introduced and nourished by Hinduism, was a world heritage and liberation powerhouse to be utilized by all. According to Patanjali who codified it in Yoga Sutra; yoga was a methodical effort to attain perfection, through the control of the different elements of human nature, physical and psychical.
Hindus worldwide seemed to be enthusiastic about Harry-Meghan marriage and wished them every happiness on their journey together, Rajan Zed added.
Prince Harry is no stranger to Hindu Temples either. In 2016, he visited Nepal and took part in traditional ceremonies including participating in Holi festival, and visited the Golden Temple in Kathmandu as part of his visit to historic Patan Durbar Square, and received a traditional Tika in the village of Dalla in Bardia National Park.
Here are some pictures from that trip:
