Today, the world will celebrate the fourth International Yoga Day.
The International Day for Yoga was declared unanimously by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) after PM Modi proposed the idea during his speech on 27 September 2014. The first International Yoga Day was celebrated across the globe on June 21, 2015.
In a statement, Modi on Wednesday greeted yoga enthusiasts across the world, saying "yoga is not just a set of exercises that keeps the body fit. It is a passport to health assurance, a key to fitness and wellness".
"Nor is yoga only what you practice in the morning. Doing your day-to-day activities with diligence and complete awareness is a form of yoga as well," he said.
"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. In a world of fear, yoga promises hope, strength and courage."
The Prime Minister participated in yoga celebrations at Rajpath in New Delhi in 2015, the Capitol Complex in Chandigarh in 2016, and the Ramabai Ambedkar Sabha Sthal in Lucknow in 2017. This year, the PM has headed to Dehradun to participate in yoga celebrations at the Forest Research Institute.
