Prime Minister Narendra Modi today joined over 50,000 yoga enthusiasts at the iconic British-era building of Forest Research Institute campus in Dehradun to celebrate the 4th International Yoga Day. Speaking on the occasion, he said that the ancient Indian discipline has emerged as the most powerful unifying force in a strife-torn world. He said that in yoga, “we have the perfect solution to the problems we face, either as individuals or in our society”. The PM added that instead of dividing, yoga unites. “Instead of further animosity, yoga assimilates. Instead of increasing suffering, yoga heals.”

He also noted that India’s proposal for the Yoga Day at the United Nations was accepted in record time with a majority of nations supporting it. The PM had earlier participated in yoga celebrations at Rajpath in New Delhi in 2015, the Capitol Complex in Chandigarh in 2016 and the Ramabai Ambedkar Sabha Sthal in Lucknow in 2017.
