Commemoration of International Day of Yoga in Gujarat Global Retreat Center (GGRC)

On the 21st of June 2021, the 6th International Day of Yoga was celebrated all over the world. In the same spirit, a Yoga programme was organised at the premises of GGRC.

The BK brothers and sisters benefitted greatly from the guidance of BK Nitin Bhai (from Mount Abu) and Yoga teacher BK Jigyasa Bahen.

The residents of Indraprastha (GGRC) took a pledge to do Yoga daily for their physical and mental well-being.

The idea of an International Day of Yoga was first proposed by the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), on 27 September 2014.

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. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.
— Narendra Modi, UN General Assembly

United Nations has defined the logo of International Yoga Day.
Folding of both hands in the logo symbolise Yoga, the Union, which reflects the union of individual consciousness with that of Universal Consciousness, a perfect harmony between mind & body, man & nature; a holistic approach to health & well being.

The brown leaves symbolise the Earth element, the green leaves symbolise the Nature, blue symbolises the Water element, brightness symbolises the Fire element and the Sun symbolise the source of energy and inspiration.

The logo reflects harmony and peace for humanity, which is the essence of Yoga. Source - Wikipedia
