J&K L-G leads Yoga Day celebrations in Srinagar


Srinagar, June 21 (IANS) Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Wednesday joined the Yoga enthusiasts at the 9th International Yoga Day Celebrations at Botanical Garden, Srinagar.

Addressing the event, the L-G said everyone should make Yoga a part of their daily routine for stress free and healthy life.

“Yoga for Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, One World, One Health. This year’s theme underlines the vision of “One Earth, One Family, One Future” of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji,” the Lt Governor said.

“Yoga is India’s greatest gift to humanity and it has transcended the boundary of religion, sect and geographical barriers to bring happiness in people’s lives,” he said.

The Lt. Governor said, “The first Sutra of Maharshi Patanjali – Now the Discipline of Yoga and second one on cessation of the mind, is the key to understand Yoga. Body-mind together as one in the present moment, here and now helps to reduce stress level, brings mindfulness and improves physical strength.

“The great sage Maharshi Patanjali has observed that disorder within our body-mind is the main reason for stress, anxiety, inflammation in the body and heart diseases. Yoga brings harmony in our body-mind,” the Lt. Governor observed.

“Yoga is not just a physical exercise, but it also symbolizes the spirit of oneness between body-mind and nature. This rich and ancient tradition, based on prevention for better health, has been accepted by medical science and researchers as a unique and significant practice of the traditional system of medicine which offers tremendous physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages,” he said.
