United Nations International Day of Yoga (IDY) June 21, 2015
On September 27, 2014 Prime Minister Narendra Mody called upon the United Nations to adopt June 21 as the International Day of Yoga. That day happens to be the Summer Solstice and also the longest day of the year in earth’s northern hemisphere. As many as 175 countries cosponsored the resolution including USA, Canada and China, underscoring the overwhelming importance of yoga for robust physical and mental health, for sustaining high energy levels, fostering a resilient immune system and inherent homeostasis, and otherwise overcoming numerous health problems associated with the body and the mind.
In America several events have been planned to celebrate IDY such as at the Times Square, Florida State University, Broadway and many others. In Atlanta it is inspiring and heartening that Mr. R. Srinivasan, Acting Consul General of India, Atlanta 30342, has seized the initiative and proposed a Congregation of all Yoga enthusiasts, and others inquisitive or interested, on the morning of June 21, 2015. We are proposing that the event be held either at the Hindu Temple of Atlanta (HTA) with a large banquet hall permitting large gatherings and yoga demos, power point presentations and other media events including annual Yoga Workshops.
HTA pioneered free Yoga classes almost a quarter century ago and continues to impart yoga training for both Hindus and to the outreach non-Hindu communities in Atlanta. Evidentially, over these years, hundreds have benefitted from such training both in a prophylactic sense as well as in overcoming numerous health problems including asthma, arthritis, cardio-vascular hassles, diabetes, high and low blood pressure and body aches, not to mention stress management. It has helped women regularize monthly cycles, and helped pregnant women have natural delivery of healthy babies. Menopausal women have found relief in yoga. Yoga has helped with migraine headaches too. Several persons wanting to visit mountainous pilgrim locales with such as Manas Sarovar, Kedarnath, Badrinath and others have taken training in breathing exercises before visiting them so that could cope with the serious challenge of fewer oxygen molecules at high altitudes. Yoga provides perhaps the very best remedy for depression and for promoting positive feelings.
We wish to highlight and publicize the immense benefits of Yoga for health and for shoring up high energy levels. Yoga contributes significantly to rationalize health care expenditures in a favorable way. Please join and help.
Let us have your practical strategy/suggestions how we may go about organizing this event such that it has the maximum positive outcome.
