Yoga is common heritage of mankind: Prez Kovind

Saturday, 29 December 2018 | TN RAGHUNATHA | Mumbai

Averring that “togetherness is the essence of yoga”,  President Ram Nath Kovind said here on Friday that “Yoga not only helps us in connecting body, mind and soul but it also plays an important role in connecting different communities and countries”.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of centennial celebrations of ‘The Yoga Institute’ in Mumbai, Kovind said: “It is not appropriate to link yoga to any religion or sect. It is a common heritage of mankind.. It belongs to everyone who is looking forward to healthy life. A healthy person makes a healthy family, healthy community, healthy country and finally a healthy world”.

The President said that it was our responsibility to establish good yoga institutes and skilled yoga teachers, since on India’s initiative yoga was getting more popular across the world. Maharashtra Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao released a book ‘Yoga for All’ written by director of the institute Hansaji Jayadeva Yogendra, on the occasion. The book is based on hundred years of research by The Yoga Institute.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Union minister of state for AYUSH Shripad Naik and other dignitaries were present at the function.
