Abstract

International Yoga Day was celebrated on 21st June 2015. People throughout the globe actively participated in the yoga day celebration. Participation of 192 nations in this mega event heralds the beginning of a new era of mankind. This was a landslide victory for India at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) when the United Nations declared June 21st as International Yoga Day (or World Yoga Day). This came after Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had urged the world community to celebrate yoga at the international level, in his maiden speech at the UNGA on September, 2014. He had said, `Yoga is an invaluable gift of our ancient tradition. It is not about exercise; it’s a path through which an individual can discover his sense of oneness with nature.
