“All human activity, physical, moral, intellectual, or beyond the intellect, which is directed towards knowledge of the Self and the world, is Yoga. ” Ajit Sarkar
Of Bengali origin, Ajit Sarkar lived his entire childhood and adolescence in Pondicherry with Sri Aurobindo and Mother, as attentive to the spirituality that was transmitted to him as to the educational methods that sought to reveal the life potential of each person in all areas. In the 1960s, he defended a thesis in France on “the place of physical education in Sri Aurobindo’s yoga”. He stayed in Paris to pass on the contribution of yoga both at the INSEP, with high level sportsmen, and in schools where he trained many teachers of Hatha Yoga and Ayurveda, surrounded by Selvi, his wife, Ranajit, his brother and many specialists. They founded the Soleil d’Or centre in Paris, in the fourteenth arrondissement, in 1977. He has always been concerned with promoting Indian culture and helping his country. In 2006, he created an association, Vellai Thamarai, which supports an educational project in India. Ajit Sarkar left his body on the 5th of March 2021.
In 2011, Swami Veetamohananda was guest of honor of the 38th EUY Congress in Zinal. We deeply thanks Swami for gracing us with his valuable teaching about “the Courage of being” . He left his body Thursday 7th November 2019 in Paris. A memorial ceremony took place in January 2020.
