On the 5th ‘International Yoga Day’ 2019, celebrate the theme of ‘Yoga for Climate Action’, a step to rejuvenate the beauty of mother earth with the 5000 year old holistic Indian approach of Yoga. Break the time-space barriers and unite with the universal consciousness, ushering into the unitary vision of the cosmos.
“Yoga is discipline, dedication, and it has to be followed throughout your life. Yoga is beyond the distinction of age, color, caste, creed, creed, cult, rich-poor, province, and frontier. Yoga belongs to everyone and everyone belongs to Yoga” –Honorable PM Shri Narendra Modi at the main event of ‘International Yoga Day’ celebration in Ranchi.
Lord Shiva is considered as the father of Yoga; Maharshi Pantanjali is claimed as the father of modern Yoga. ‘The Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali’, a compilation of 195 Yoga Sutras is speculated as the foundation of Yoga Philosophy. Swami Vivekananda was the first to ignite the resurgence of Indian cultural influences throughout the world, by global adaptation of Yoga-based techniques and practices.
Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi was the first to honor the millennial cultural civilization of India, by initiating Yogic practices on International level, and emphasizing “Yoga as India’s gift to the world”. Yogic Revolution triumphed in India, when the U.N declared 21st June as “The International Yoga Day” in 2015. History was created when the bill proposed by a country was passed at once and was implemented by the UN within 90 days.
In his address to the U.N, PM Narendra Modi suggested 21st June as ‘The International Yoga Day’ as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The Hindu Yogic Practices encompass a variety of methods comprising Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Laya Yoga and Hatha Yoga.
Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in wellbeing. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day. — Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi at the UN General Assembly
