The distinguished visitor expressed to be glad in the Caribbean nation. "I speak a lot about Cuba in the world and the United Nations. I always talk about the beauty of this country. I am very fortunate to be here, God blessed me so that I could be here, this people, this government is very kind. India has excellent relations with Cuba, "he said.
"Yoga provides harmony and peace, physical, mental and spiritual health. Life must go to happiness, to harmony. We all live in one land: Yoga is there for that unit, we must learn to live in happiness, " he added.
When answering a question about the experiences of Yoga in adolescents with addictions, he expressed that "first of all it depends on the parents; the children grow in the lap of their parents. After three years they must teach them with whom to relate and where to go. The teacher is the second father; he must take care of them and educate them at the same time, and also influence in their diet".
