The 6th International Day of Yoga was commemorated on an online Zoom cloud meting and through a live broadcast on the Facebook page of the Sanatan Dharma Swayamsevak Sangh (SDSS Myanmar) yesterday.
Deputy Minister for Religious Affairs and Culture, U Kyi Min, first spoke at the Zoom cloud meeting and extended warm wishes to the Ambassador of India and embassy families, Hindu religious leaders, officials, Hindus and other guests joining the meeting. The theme for International Day of Yoga this year was ‘Yoga at Home and Yoga with Family’ and is quite appropriate for the current period, said the Deputy Minister. He said practicing yoga is known to boost self-confidence, patience and serenity while aiding in physical fitness, proper blood circulation, memory, and eyesight. He said it keeps the body fresh and should be done regularly. The second part of the programme then began with lighting ceremonial oil lamps followed by recitals of religious scripts and an opening speech from the SDSS Chairman. A practical demonstration of yoga was then displayed after which Deputy Minister U Kyi Min and the Ambassador of India delivered speeches and the Vice-Chairman of SDSS expressed words of gratitude. The Five Precepts and pattana were also observed.—MNA (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
