PM Narendra Modi begins his address at the 8th International Day of Yoga celebrations at Mysuru Palace Ground, Karnataka :
Spiritual centres such as Mysuru have promoted Yog Urja, which is now transforming preventive healthcare across the world.
When the world faced the dangers of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world realised the importance of Yoga. It was realised that it is not for any country but for the whole of humanity, that’s why the theme ‘ Yoga for Humanity’.
Yoga brings peace to us, it makes us conscious, competent & compassionate. It is a way to create an environment of global peace.
This is how Yoga connects people & becomes a problem solver for the world.
Guardian Ring of Yog, is making a ring of Yoga across the world as people begin Yoga Day celebrations with sunrise in their respective countries.
Yoga celebrations across the world today are following the sun as it rises in the East & travels West: this forms the Guardian Ring of Yog.

No matter how stressed we are, a few minutes of meditation relaxes us, increases our productivity. Therefore, we do not have to take yoga as extra work. We have to know yoga, we have to live yoga.
Yoga is no longer just a part of life, but it is now a way of life.
