P. C. SHARMA June 21 is celebrated as Antarrasjtroya Yog Divas all over the world every year with extraordinary preparation and enthusiasm. Prime Minister, Narender Modi had a vision to generate awareness about efficacy of Yoga to provide holistic health comprising physical, mental and spiritual well being not only in our native country but all over the world. Being a visionary statesman and a man of action he was able to prevail upon United Nations and the member countries to understand the concept of yoga and adopt it religiously for regular practice of Yog Asan, Pranayam and meditation to start with and subsequently Astang Yog can be followed and practiced consistently which consists of eight commandments or dimensions for the ultimate transformation of the human beings and making the world healthy, conflict free, abode of lasting peace and usher in the era of vibrant co-existence based on our fundamental principle of Vasudev Kutumbkum and symbiotic relationship in real sense of the term. The overwhelming response of International community coupled with matched action is indicative of the fact that the whole world in its entirety fervently wish to have endurable and hassle free system of providing holistic health without any monetary investment and paves the way to most cherished and world order wherein dream blissfulness reigns supreme for all species of homo sapiens. Celebration of International Yog Day on June 21 every year is not only a symbolic event but a pointed reminder to the fact that Yog is a scientific way of life, not a religious practice which has to be adopted by all and sundry as the first and foremost priority of life for profound health and happiness. It is the epitome of nation’s vision in action. Simply by doing or demonstrating few yogasanas (physical postures) and pranayams (breathing practices) on this auspicious occasion for a single day and subsequently relapsing into old ruts shall not serve any useful purpose. It has to be earmarked as number one priority of each day in the core of sub conscious mind. Unarguably by virtue of locking the 21 June as International Day the desired results and the allied benefits have started pouring in throughout the length and breadth of the world. International community is effectively experiencing the soothing and meaningful impact. Awareness of Yoga as scientific system of life is disseminating at a double quick pace. Certainly the people across the global horizon are getting empowered by the yogic ripple effect. The Union Govt. is seriously working in this sphere. Ayush Deptt has been made actively functional under the proactive support of concerned ministry. They have taken pains to draft a common yoga syllabus/ module with the consultation and involvement of yoga experts associated with number of yoga Institutes and organizations S Vyasa University, Bengaluru, Patanjali Yog Peeth, Bhartiya Yog Sanstha, Delhi etc. for conducting various programs in relation to celebrations of International Yog Day on global scale. Requisite directions have gone to the people at the helms for implementation and proper execution. Yoga instructors have been trained for conducting programs and motivationalpresentations for awareness and adopting yoga as a scientific way of life in the country and abroad as well. In this twilight hour and the golden occasion of 5th Antarrashtriya Yog Divas on 21 June, 2019which would definitely go down as a Red Letter Day in the annals of world history, it shall be worthwhile to revisit the underlying philosophy of Ashtangyog propounded by Maharishi Patanjali which possess the magic panacea for harmony in nature, global integration, holistic health for all species, resetting the dwindling ecosystem, hydra headed terrorism and steep erosion in the life values. Anger, infinite desires, lust for power, materialistic enjoyment, uncontrollable greed leading to abysmal vortex of inhuman crimes. 1.
