YOGA-FOR-SELF-AND-SOCIETY: As the 10th International Day of Yoga approaches, the world prepares to celebrate this ancient practice with a focus on its profound benefits for both individuals and society. Established by the United Nations on 21 June, this day is dedicated to recognizing yoga's universal appeal and its impact on physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

The International Day of Yoga was first proclaimed by the UN on 11 December 2014 through Resolution 69/131. This annual observance aims to educate the public on the benefits of yoga, mobilize political will to address global health issues, and celebrate human achievements.

This year's theme, "Yoga for self and society," underscores the dual benefits of yoga. For individuals, yoga enhances physical health by improving flexibility, strength, and balance. It also promotes mental well-being, reducing stress, anxiety, and depression. Regular practice of yoga fosters self-awareness, mindfulness, and inner peace, facilitating a harmonious and balanced life.

On a societal level, yoga encourages a culture of health and wellness. It brings people together, fostering a sense of community and shared purpose. Group yoga sessions promote social bonds and mutual support. Additionally, yoga's principles, including compassion, non-violence, and respect for all beings, inspire ethical behavior and social harmony.

The emphasis on mindfulness and self-discipline in yoga encourages conscious living, reducing negative behaviors and promoting sustainable practices. By nurturing individual well-being and positive social interactions, yoga contributes to a healthier, more peaceful, and connected society.

India, the birthplace of yoga, plays a central role in promoting the International Day of Yoga. The resolution establishing this day was proposed by India under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. PM Modi emphasized the holistic benefits of yoga, describing it as an invaluable gift from ancient tradition that unites mind and body, thought and action.

In conclusion, the International Day of Yoga is a celebration of yoga's transformative power, benefiting both individuals and societies worldwide. This year's theme, "Yoga for self and society," highlights its universal appeal and its potential to promote health, well-being, and social harmony.
