Yoga became a source of inner strength among people amid the novel coronavirus pandemic and inculcated faith in them that they could fight the virus, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today.
“Yoga shows us the road from stress to strength and from negativity to creativity,” PM said as he addressed the nation on the occasion of the 7th International Yoga Day.
“When Covid emerged, no country was prepared. At this time yoga became a source of inner strength. Yoga helps in self-discipline, it inculcated faith in people that they could fight this virus. Frontline warriors told me that they made yoga a tool in fighting the virus,” PM Modi, who was dressed in an orange kurta, said.
PM Modi also said that India, in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), will launch the M-Yoga application, which will have many videos of yoga training based on Common Yoga Protocol available in different languages of the world.
This will help us in making the ”One World, One Health” motto successful, he said.
“For most of the countries of the world, Yoga Day is not their age-old cultural festival. In this difficult time, people in so much trouble could forget it, ignore it. But on the contrary, people’s enthusiasm for yoga has increased, love for yoga has increased,” PM said.
