Mass Yoga demonstrations will be held at 75 locations that are iconic in India, which have witnessed the rich history of India and have been the centre of cultural energy.
“The experience of collective Yoga at the historic sites of India is like tying India’s past and India’s diversity together, and India’s growth,” he explained.
He also shared information about the innovative programme “Guardian Yoga Ring”, which is a collaborative effort between 79 nations and United Nations organisations, as well as Indian Missions abroad, to demonstrate Yoga’s unifying power that transcends national boundaries.

PM Modi addressed the gathering and said that “The whole universe begins from our body and soul.” All of the universe begins with us. Yoga makes us aware of all that is within us, and gives us a sense awareness. Yoga brings us peace. Yoga isn’t just for the individual. Yoga brings peace to society. Yoga brings peace to the nations and the entire world. Yoga brings peace to the universe.
He believed that yoga was for everyone, not just the individual.

Meditation can help us relax and improve our productivity, no matter how stressed we may be. Yoga does not need to be considered an extra job. It is essential to practice yoga. Yoga must be lived. Yoga isn’t just a part of our lives, it is becoming a way of living,” he stated.

PM Modi stressed that yoga’s eternal journey will continue to lead to an “eternal tomorrow”.
He stated, “We will also accelerate peace and health in the world through yoga with the spirit ‘Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah’, Sarve Santu Niramaya”.
