Sharing a video message in the run up for the 4th International Day of Yoga, PM Narendra Modi expressed happiness over the rising popularity of Yoga all over the world. He termed Yoga as one of the most precious gifts given by the ancient Indian sages to humankind.

He said that Yoga was not just a set of exercises to keep the body fit but a passport to health assurance, a key to fitness and wellness. “Free from illness, a path to wellness –that is the path of Yoga… It makes us better individuals in thought, action, knowledge and devotion”, he remarked.

Adding that Yoga brought about oneness among the mind, body and intellect, he said, “Yoga is the journey from me to we.”

Shri Modi referred to Yoga as the solution to ailments like stress and lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, hyper-tension and depression.

Asserting that Yoga did not discriminate anyone, he said, “Yoga goes beyond boundaries of age, gender, caste, creed, religion and nations.”

“In a world of excess, Yoga promises restraint and balance… In a world suffering from mental stress, Yoga promises calm… In a distracted world, Yoga helps focus, boosts concentration… In a world of fear, Yoga promises hope, strength and courage”, he said.

Stating that Yoga ensured peace of mind, Shri Modi opined, “People who are at peace with themselves are at peace with others too. Such people build harmonious nations. Such nations build a harmonious world.”

Shri Modi said that with more people embracing Yoga, the demand for Yoga teachers was rising and hence, the next challenge was to produce institutionally trained Yoga teachers and further the reach of Yoga, especially among the youth.
