It is really a great honour for India to bring Yoga in the international forum. We have created a mark by creating oneness with humanity on yoga day.
It is not to believe in God but to experience God. Once you get into personal experience, your mind naturally gives you the power to face any situation with a positive approach. I call this as the spiritual attitude. Your mental approach towards the situation with full positivity is spiritual attitude. You may not have the power to fix the problem but you will have the power to face any problem and successfully overcome it. Research says that no medicine can work to the fullest on a person who is always into negative thinking. Yoga is thus about rising one’s attitude towards a positive life in the present and in the future. We are gifted with this science which is the only powerful way to bring changes to human life. This is celebrated universally so that it can reach every human being living on this planet irrespective of caste, creed, nationality, language etc.
Yoga gives you the power to take the greatest decisions which will bring a beautiful shift to human beings with real peace and prosperity. You will not try to live a perfect life; instead you will try to live a happy life.
The fundamental goal of yoga is not to attain any perfection in life but to enjoy every moment of your life.
It is never a possibility for human beings to live on this planet without having a bad experience. No matter how bad an experience you had in the past, you will have the strength to be calm and strong to people who have insulted and betrayed you. Above all yoga will give you the the highest quality to bring real peace, love and forgiveness. Experiences will make you realise that darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. That’s why it’s said that “ASATO MA SADGAMAYA, TAMASOMA JYOTIR GAMAYA, MRITYORMA AMRITAM GAMAYA”. The international yoga day will make the entire humanity understand that hate can never remove hatred, only love can do that. Can you love everyone? Not possible because not everyone has done the same to you but you can accept everyone. Even if people have done wrong to you, you can forgive everyone which is the foundation for real love and the essential source to bring real peace and happiness to the entire humanity. Therefore, all the physical exercises and meditation should be performed with self-commitment and true discipline. Even though yoga has got tons and tons of proof that it makes us healthy, the real purpose is to achieve the above three aspects of human life which is the essential source to bring real peace, happiness and prosperity to the entire world.
Wishing you a life full of peace, success and happiness!!
Atmayogi Shri Aasaanji Aham Brahmasmi !
