“My own spiritual journey began in 2005-2006 with a profound experience of Vipassana meditation. Surrounded by the serenity of India, I explored inner peace and self-discovery, which has become a cornerstone of my life. In the depths of meditation, where reflection flourishes, I believe true greatness takes root,” Savji Dholakia continued.

Hari Krishna Exports’s dedication to employee wellness is evident in its consistent efforts to promote yoga and meditation. These practices are not only on annual occasions like Yoga Day but are woven into its daily routine, fostering a healthier and more balanced work environment.
