This week, in continuing with our month-long series on cosmic humor, the Cosmic Citizen will feature Dr. Madan Kataria, a medical doctor from Mumbai, India popularly known as the ‘Guru of Giggling’ (London Times).

He is the founder of the Laughter Yoga Clubs movement started in 1995. While researching the benefits of laughter, he was amazed by the number of studies showing the profound physiological and psychological benefits of laughter. He decided to find a way to deliver these benefits to his patients and other people. The result is Laughter Yoga, a unique exercise routine that combines group laughter exercises with yoga breathing. It allows anyone to laugh without the use jokes, humor or comedy. Started with just five people in a public park in Mumbai, India in 1995, Laughter Yoga has grown into a worldwide movement of more than 6000 Laughter Yoga clubs in over 60 countries.

Spreading rapidly in USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, the Middle East, South East Asia, China and Africa, this new concept has been widely covered by prestigious publications like the TIME magazine, National Geographic, and the Wall Street Journal and featured on CNN, BBC, US networks and the Oprah Winfrey Show.
