Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday congratulated those who have been conferred with the Prime Minister’s Award for Outstanding Contribution for Promotion and Development of Yoga, 2019. “We are immensely proud of their rich work to ensure more people embrace Yoga and our planet becomes healthier,” he tweeted.

Modi posted the congratulatory message on Twitter in Spanish, French, Arabic, Russian, Japanese and English. Founded in 1980, the Japan Yoga Niketan has popularised yoga across Japan. It runs many yoga training institutes and courses. They have been able to draw people from all sections of Japanese society, Modi said. Founded by Swami Satyananda Saraswati, the Bihar School of Yoga, Munger has been actively working for over 50 years.

“They merge ancient wisdom with modern trends with an aim to improve fitness. Their yoga programmes and publications are widely popular,” the PM said. Modi also referred to Antonietta Rozzi, who belongs to Italy and has been practising Yoga for over four decades. She founded the Sarva Yoga International and popularised Yoga across Europe.

“We are proud of dedicated individuals like her,” he tweeted. The prime minister said Swami Rajarshi Muni, who hails from Gujarat’s Limbdi, has made remarkable efforts to spread yoga. Most notably, he founded the LIFE Mission and is associated with Lakulish Yoga University that mentors students, he said. “His commitment to social service is also outstanding,” Modi said.
