Russell Simmons, commented, “I am very excited to launch GDAS short for Govinda Das Ananda or God’s blissful servant, as a premier online yoga meditation and wellness destination. Yogic science is also known as the science of happiness, the goal of yoga is nothing short of full self realization. The yogis know that once one truly knows the self, they fully know God and live in his kingdom forever. She is then in a state of christ consciousness nirvana, taqua nirvana, yoga or in union with GOD. After studying yogic science for over 25 years, I have taken an oath to dedicate the last chapter of my life to helping people get out of the suffering of this world. This is a very personal project for me as it is the result of my own personal journey and now part of my plan to instill more of the physical health, happiness, mindfulness, compassion, love and interreligious collaboration that I have long promoted. As a Christian yogi with a love and respect for all religions, I pray that this app will be a bridge builder and that it will earn profits to help underserved community members everywhere. The style of the physical Asana is Tantris yoga, it is a combination of jivamukti, Astanga, Iyengar, Power, and Bikram yoga. The app is intuitive and very traditional in nature, the music will vary from krishna das and bhagavad das to Beyonce and EPMD. We are all experiencing a new way of life during the pandemic and more people are seeking the tools that will help them achieve lasting stable happiness. One does not have to become fully enlightened to experience yoga, one should note that every effort we make in this life is for more seconds of yoga. These tools will add more seconds, minutes and hours of presence awareness and God consciousness to anyone who partakes. Our partnership with Touchpoint is critical, and they are creative and resourceful enough to help us achieve our goals. I couldn’t be happier with our product. With great love, all things are possible.”
Spencer Christopher, CTO of Touchpoint, said, “We look forward to supporting the success of Russell’s online business. Importantly, the Touchpoint app is helping celebrities and fans connect in modern ways during the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to building the GDAS online business with Russell, and to put GDAS at the forefront of on-demand yoga and meditation.”
