Gandhi Jayanti: Celebrating the True Meaning of Yoga
On the auspicious occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, Pujya Swamiji was the Chief Guest and Keynote speaker at the 50th anniversary of Bharatiya Yoga Sansthan. More than 10,000 people gathered together at Chhatrasal Stadium to hear Pujya Swamiji speak on how to LIVE yoga not just do yoga.
Pujya Swamiji explained that yoga is not what we do on the mat for 30 or 60 minutes a day, but rather yoga is who we are! He emphasized that the best yogi is an “upyogi” one who is helpful to others and to humanity.
“Unless you are also an Upyogi, you cannot be a true yogi,” He explained.
Pujya Swamiji praised the Bharatiya Yoga Sansthan and said that through Yoga we are able to not only Make IN India but actually to Make India! He inspired everyone to pledge at the huge Chhatrasal Stadium that they would serve together to be of use to the nation by keeping it clean and free from open defecation. He alluded to the fact that the stadium which was on the Mahatma Gandhi Road was truly the best way to start this historic day and commit ourselves to walking the path of the great leader whose vision for India still guides us today. Pujya Swamiji’s message and the entire event not only inspired the thousands there at the stadium but through live stream on Sadhana channel countless many all across India and the world.
