Culture is synonymous with a way of life. The ancient sages and seers of India prescribed a healthy lifestyle, and today, the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha continues to support such traditions to ensure its members live physically and culturally well. The organization holds free weekly yoga classes at many of its centers around the world. It also promotes a vegetarian lifestyle through a variety of publications, exhibits, camps, and seminars. BAPS has introduced a line of dietary supplements and nutritional treatments based on the Vedic science of Ayurveda, a form of alternative medicine. This line of herbal products, called Amrut, is made from vital and pure ingredients that are organically grown in India. BAPS has helped thousands of individuals maintain physically and mentally sound lives through its wellness and lifestyle programs.
