Yoga unifying force for world, says PM Modi

"The word yoga means to unite. Therefore, this surge of interest in yoga fills me with hope. I hope that yoga can become a binding force for the world," Modi said in his video address to inaugurate the YO1 Luxury Nature Cure Centre

United Nations: While inaugurating the ‘YO1 Luxury Nature Cure Centre’ in the Catskills area of New York State yesterday via video-link, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hoped that yoga can become a “binding force” for the world, asserting it has no religion and contributes to the physical and mental well-being of individuals.

“The word yoga means to unite. Therefore, this surge of interest in yoga fills me with hope. I hope that yoga can become a binding force for the world,” Modi said.

The Prime Minister said in just three years the International Yoga Day has grown into a worldwide public movement and become an integral part of public life in many countries.

“I always believe that yoga has no religion. It contains practical steps which can benefit everyone, even those who do not consider themselves religious,” Modi said.

“Its impact has expanded far beyond its day of observance,” he said, adding that across nations, the day has become an occasion for initiations of millions of people inspired by the spirit of yoga, who commit themselves to its pursuit.

He added that several people, who already practice yoga, re-dedicate themselves to its pursuit on this day.

Lauding the opening of the centre, Modi appreciated that it will create about 2,000 direct and indirect jobs in the area.
