Even before the sun rose on June 21, a huge gathering of 50,000 yoga enthusiasts conglomerated at New Delhi’s Red Fort to celebrate the fourth International Day of Yoga.
The event was organised by Brahma Kumaris and supported by the Ministry of AYUSH. It began with speeches
delivered by Rajyogi BK Brijmohan, additional secretary general of Brahma Kumaris, Mount Abu, and Rajyogini, Dadin Janki, chief of Brahma Kumaris. Participants present at the event performed several exercises and hatha yoga kriyas.
Addressing the enthusiasts, Dadi Janki said, “Yog means union with the supreme soul. It teaches you to become the light of God; serve others by being a lighthouse yourself. All you need to do is to care, share, and inspire.” Brimming with a sense of pride that the Indian culture of yoga is being promoted at a global level, Sudarshan Bhagat, union minister of state for tribal affairs, said “Practising yoga keeps your mind and body healthy and keeps one away from unnecessary stress and diseases.” He also lauded Brahma Kumaris for their grand initiative on the Yoga day. The event was followed by the live telecast of the Prime Minister’s speech from the Forest “From the snowy Himalayas to the scorching deserts, yoga is present everywhere.
In today’s express lifestyle, situations often end up in a conflict between people, societies, or nations. In
such a scenario, yoga emerges as an effective unifying force.”
Derk Segaar, director of the United Nations Information Centre, claimed yoga to be India’s most precious gift to the world. “Yoga was adopted by the UN general assembly in 2014 and was celebrated in almost every country. This illustrates how deeply the ancient Indian practice of yoga resonates with people around the world,” he added.
Among the guests present were Dr A K Merchant, national trustee, Bahai Community of India; Firoz Bakht Ahmad, chancellor, Maulana Azad National Urdu University; Ven. Lama Lobzang, secretary general of the International Buddhist Federation; and Ven. Ezekiel Isaac Malekar, priest, Judah Hyam Synagogue. Truly, India is winning the world over, with yoga.
