Arunachal Pradesh observed the International Day of Yoga by organizing yoga camps in various parts of the state maintaining all Covid-19 protocols.

In the state capital Itanagar, the main function was arranged at Raj Bhawan where Governor Brig (Retd) Dr B D Mishra and Chief Minister Pema Khandu participated in a yoga session organized by the state youth affairs department.

In his message to the people, the Governor said that on the initiative of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the International Day of Yoga was recognized by the United Nations General Assembly in 2014. It was endorsed by a record 175 member States. International Day of Yoga has inspired millions of people all over the globe to practice Yoga – a precious health gift of Ancient Indian seers to mankind, he said.

The Governor said that Bhagwad Gita narrates Yoga as, ‘Yoga Karmasu Kaushalam’, which very aptly means ‘Yoga brings excellence in whatever you do’. The art of practising Yoga keeps the mind steady, both in times of adversity and prosperity, and brings about positivity in thought, speech, and action. Yoga is a time tested regimen and it helps manage stress, anxiety, and depression, he said.

Let us adopt Yoga practice as part of our daily routine and lifestyle. In a larger humane approach, we should also initiate others into Yoga Practice for their healthier future and glorious contribution for a Developed Bharat, the Governor said in his message.
