Yoga Day
Yoga Day
June 21st is celebrated every year as Yoga Day since 2015, after it was subsequently incepted in the United Nations General Assembly in 2014. Yoga is a traditional practice followed in India to keep our mind, body and soul fit.
June 21st was chosen by our Honorable Prime Minister while was addressing in the UN meet on 2014 as the day is long in the ‘Northern Hemisphere’ and it has a major importance in various parts of the globe.
The initiative of having an International Day for Yoga was proposed by the Prime Minister back on September 27th 2014 in the UN assembly where he said that: “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 well being. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.”
Doing yoga assures a fit and healthy life and one can bring out their inner peace.
Further post the Day was announced and adopted in the drafts of the UN, RBI had released a 10 rupee coin in order to honor the day. Later in 2017 April the UN Postal Administration (UNPA) has released 10 stamps with the symbol of Asanas in one sheet in honor the day.
