The importance of Yoga is being recognised not only by our Indian Armed forces but many people all across India are accepting and adopting the benefits of the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India.

The UN headquarters had organised the Yoga Day on the ground outside, but due to rains, it was moved to the magnificent General Assembly hall inside.

More than 80 people collected at the French Embassy to celebrate Yoga. More than 25 lakh people are fond of yoga in France which makes the country a European hub for yoga.

Yoga was also performed with equal zeal at the Embassy of the United States of America in Delhi:

Yoga is not only about discipline but it is all about fun! People on this Yoga day were seen dressed up as cartoon characters, celebrating International Yoga Day with PM Modi in Ranchi.

As our Prime Minister rightly said, yoga is one of the most powerful unifying forces in the world. Yoga is the oneness of the individual soul (jiva) with the Atma. A disciplined technique of controlling the body and the mind.

Last year too, this day was celebrated across India with equal enthusiasm. Then to Twitter had poured in with images of International Yoga Day celebrations which had then proved that the Indian Armed forces are not only unmatched in their valour and skills, but also in their style and ingenuity.
