International Yoga Day 2018

Another Yoga Day.
Usual hype. Media overload. Photo-ops. Celebrities galore.
But those who do yoga योग regularly, it is just another day. Like this senior citizen at Rameshwaram sea shore.



What is Yoga? It is best described by this line from Bhagwad Gita भगवत गीता , "Yoga is the journey of the self through the self to the self".
Yoga helps us understand our inner self.
Yoga gives us better self-control.
Yoga inculcates self-discipline.
Yoga for health.
Yoga for happiness.
Yoga for inner peace.
The government of India has given the theme 'Yoga for Peace' for this year's International Day of Yoga

For those of us who enjoy yoga every day, yoga is a way of life.
Like this grandpa-grandson combine! A grandson adds different flavour to the asanas आसन. Browse here.




Ghumakkad had also compared Yoga with Golf. Both help us develop better concentration. How? Browse the story here.
Even Elfo our Cairn Terrier who is no more, knew when I was on the yoga mat in the morning. He had lost his eyesight, but he could maneuver himself to reach me. Read the story 'Who will nudge me now'.


Yoga is India's gift to the world, Ghumakkad said so earlier. We wish the citizens of the world a Happy Yoga Day. May Yoga bring peace into your life.
