Maharishi Institute celebrates 7th International Yoga Day virtually
BHOPAL [Maha Media]: In the divine presence of Honorable President MVM School Group Brahmachari Girish Ji, Maharishi Institute celebrated the 7th International Day of Yoga in virtual mode.
The member of Maharishi family, including students, faculty, staff, their family members and children enthusiastically participated in the virtual yoga session.
Participants practiced yoga asanas with online demonstrations created by TM teachers and experts specially for Maharishi Institutes.
Addresssing the participants on importance of Yog in everybody’s life especially during this critical period, Brahmachari Girish Ji said that Yoga is the gateway to happiness and we all should include it in our daily life.
Girish Ji praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s efforts towards promoting Yoga and said it was due to the prime minister’s initiatives that yoga has got international recognition and June 21 is now celebrated as the International Day of Yoga.
Girish ji said that in general today Yoga is considered only as a physical exercise, but yoga is much more than this. Brahmachari ji said that the concept of celebrating International Yoga Day is good but today yoga has become a photo op, so we should try to do it seriously on all 365 days of the year.
It is very difficult to explain yoga in one point. What people know about yoga is not complete, it is only a small part of it. Maharishi Patanjali has created yoga by combining eight limbs. The eight limbs are described as Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayam, Pratyahar, Dharna, Dhyana and Samadhi. Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pratyahara are considered to be external aspects and Dharna, Dhhyan and Samadhi are internal aspects. In simple words, yoga is the means for the soul to reach the Supreme Soul, Girish Ji added.
Extending greetings on International Yoga Day at the end of his virtual address, Girish Ji said that the government should implement yoga in its full form in all areas of the society including education, only then all-round development of all would be possible.
