Ambassador's article in Vietnam News on the occasion of International Day of Yoga 2020

Yoga is a unique contribution from ancient Indian civilisation to the modern world. The literal meaning of the word ‘yoga’ is ‘to unite’. Ancient Indian texts tell that the practice of yoga helps the union between individual consciousness and the universal consciousness, which is the key to achieving the perfect harmony between mind, soul and body. This very basic idea has been guiding the lives of many since the beginning of civilisation in India and across the world. This has also helped in creating harmony between humankind and nature, which is important to ensure ecological balance and a compassionate outlook towards all. Our civilisational connection brought yoga to Vietnam’s shores in ancient times and has deeply influenced the lives of people here. In modern times, as yoga is helping to connect humanity across the world to achieve a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle, it is heartening to see the popularity of yoga today across the length and breadth of Vietnam. It is in this spirit that since 2015, India and Vietnam have been closely partnering to observe the International Day of Yoga every year, creating awareness about yoga and bringing its benefits to millions of practitioners.

International Day of Yoga 2020

Yoga is a 5,000-year-old tradition from India that combines physical, mental and spiritual pursuits to achieve harmony of the body and mind. On December 11 in 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 21st as the International Day of Yoga. The declaration came at the behest of the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi during his address to UN General Assembly on September 27, 2014 wherein he stated: "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”.
