Historic event has put J&K on global map: LG Sinha

Srinagar: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Friday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi leading 10th International ‘Yoga Day’ celebrations in Srinagar has put Jammu Kashmir on global map.
“I am grateful to Hon’ble PM for giving J&K an opportunity to lead the International Yoga Day celebrations. This historic event has put Jammu Kashmir on global map,” LG Sinha said.

He said,  “Yoga plays the most significant role in enhancing the physical, psychological and emotional aspects of well-being. Hon’ble PM has taken the Yoga to the world and today this invaluable gift from our ancient tradition is being practiced across the globe.”

“Yoga is a holistic approach towards happiness. It is the first step towards a healthy life. It unites Body and Mind as saint Patanjali had said that Body and Mind are one. Yoga brings consciousness and through consciousness pure joy is born,” LG said.

He quoted ‘Puman Pumansam Paripatu Vishwatah’ and ‘Vyashem Devahitam Yadayu’ to stress the importance of charity and unity among humanity. Referring to Maharishi Patanjali’s teachings, he emphasised on the unity of body and mind in Yoga practice.

LG Sinha concluded his speech by acknowledging the global impact of PM’s vision of ‘One Earth One Health’ and expressed his appreciation for the Prime Minister’s efforts in restoring the ancient glory of Jammu and Kashmir over the past decade.
