Ranchi: Jharkhand Governor Droupadi Murmu today said yoga helps in development of mind and body, besides engineering a stress-free life.
“Everyone is under stress; every person wants to be stress-free and only yoga can make (you) stress-free,” Murmu said.
She said the art also helps in development of mind and body, besides assisting development in character.
Addressing at the Yogada Satsang Ashram here ahead of the International Yoga Day, she said yoga was for everyone and reflected “Sarve Bhabantu Sukhino (let everyone remain happy).”
Stating that the aim of Yoga “is to connect body with the soul and the soul with the Supreme Soul”, she said like rivers’ ultimate journey is towards the Sea, the soul’s is the Supreme soul.
Appreciating Paramhans Yogadanand, Ramakrishna Mission, Bramhakumari Eswariya Vidyalaya and Patanjali for their efforts in taking yoga to the people, Murmu said the objective for a healthy India could happen only by taking to yoga.
