The im­por­tance of yoga

The idea of the In­ter­na­tional Day of Yoga was first pro­posed by the Prime Min­is­ter of In­dia Naren­dra Modi dur­ing his speech at the UNGA. Fol­low­ing his pro­posal, the UN unan­i­mously de­clared 21st June as In­ter­na­tional Yoga Day. To­day, al­most 200 coun­tries are en­dors­ing yoga. De­cod­ing the prin­ci­ples of yoga: Yoga is not a re­li­gious tra­di­tion or ex­er­cise; it is a sci­en­tific, uni­ver­sal and sec­u­lar life sys­tem. For pa­tients, yoga is a com­plete treat­ment (sys­tem) and for yo­gis, it is the source to achieve per­fec­tion in life. The five prime ben­e­fits of yoga are: a. Bal­ances the whole sys­tem – from the chem­i­cals, salts and hor­mones to the en­tire phys­i­cal sys­tem. b. Re­gen­er­ates the de­gen­er­ated cells. c. Awakens the divine and spir­i­tual side. d. Cre­ates more aware­ness about the sur­round­ings. e. Treats dis­ease and de­for­ma­tion of the mind. A yogi never thinks of vi­o­lence, ly­ing, dis­hon­esty and greed, and there is no pro­fan­ity, dis­sat­is­fac­tion, in­ac­tion, self-aver­sion and athe­ism found in his life. From yoga, comes pro­duc­tiv­ity, cre­ativ­ity and pos­i­tiv­ity. It is the com­plete source for ex­ter­nal and in­ter­nal de­vel­op­ment of an in­di­vid­ual. From the yo­gic ac­tiv­i­ties and asanas, pranayama and med­i­ta­tion, the soul is awak­ened. Health, beauty, power, peace, pros­per­ity, hap­pi­ness and suc­cess – these are the seven main wishes of peo­ple across the world. These seven pru­den­tial wishes can be ac­com­plished from yoga. All those who do yoga in the morn­ing achieve com­plete en­ergy to dis­charge their du­ties ef­fi­ciently. Just an hour ded­i­cated to yoga will work won­ders.
