Yoga guru Baba Ramdeo, during his evening yoga session at Patna's Gandhi Maidan on Thursday, said that now that he had seen Bihar from his own eyes, he would spread positive message about Bihar across the nation letting people know how hospitable, hard-working people of Bihar were.
"Before I came here, I was told by many people to be careful, to not visit Bihar as people here were rude and rowdy. I am, however, pleased to say that all those warnings turned out to be false and full of misleading information," Baba Ramdeo said adding he was so impressed with Bihar that now he would visit the state on an annual basis.
The spiritual leader also praised the Biharis for being so yoga-aware. "What I have found is the people of Bihar are very determined and tenacious. They go out of state and work very hard. The only problem is when they are in their own home state, they don't exert themselves to the fullest," he lamented.
Talking about the medicinal value of Tulsi plant, the Baba said that the leaves of Tulsi had the power of keeping cancer at bay. "Just 3-4 leaves of Tulsi a day can keep cancer, minor cold and cough away," Baba Ramdeo said.
He also expressed his plan to open a yoga center in Bihar. "The government has promised to provide me 100 acres of land to open a yoga center but that would take some time. In the meantime, I will open several centers at community halls and large houses so those interested in learning more about yoga techniques could start the training without much wait, he said.
