“Yoga fills our life with music. We are here as for unity amidst the diversity. The purpose of yoga is to lead us to the state of ‘Sangam’ (confluence) within us, where every moment is yoga,” Sri Sri said.

While leading a special ‘asana’, he also said that instead of selfie point “let us realise that the self is the point — the source of all consciousness”.

Ramdev said that yog Kranti (the Revolution of Yoga) is the core of all revolutions and by practising yoga every day and doing ‘Karma Yoga’ throughout the day the potential and infinite light that we truly are is unleashed.
