Article: International Day of Yoga – A day for peace of mind
21 June 2021
International Day of Yoga – A day for peace of mind
The International Day (IDY) of Yoga has been celebrated annually on June 21 since 2015, following its inception in the United Nations General Assembly in 2014.
There are many types of yoga. For this article we focus on yoga meditation as practised by the Brahma Kumaris.
The root of the word yoga is from the Sanskrit ‘yug’ which means to yoke or unite. That is the uniting of the individual soul with the Supreme Soul. While the goal is yoga or union with God, the method is meditation, which is a purposeful directing of one’s thoughts.
This is a subtle activity, and multiple techniques have been developed to facilitate it.
If you are new to meditation, choose a space and time where you will have the least disturbance. This can be individually, as part of a group or a family activity. Start with about ten minutes, then work your way up to 20, 30 or 40 minutes.
The aim is to keep the body relaxed and the mind alert. Sit in a balanced, upright position with back support if necessary.
Low lighting and good air circulation help to create a relaxed environment. Begin with harnessing the mind. Withdraw your attention from the external world and picture yourself as a tiny point of spiritual light in the centre of the forehead.
You can also try paying attention to your breath or repeating a mantra or affirmation. Ponder the question of: Who am I? The answer is; I am a peaceful, divine soul.
Consider meditation as an exercise in slowness, with fewer thoughts and a sustained focus. This allows space for deeper feelings, to surface, related to the thoughts.
To reach a place of new, intrinsic realizations, time is needed to clear the clutter of old thoughts and emotions. At a minimum, the act of slowing down the thinking process and highlighting the positive will result in rest, refreshment and increased clarity.
A second function/faculty that should be engaged is the intellect. Make conscious decisions about what to keep in the mind and eject destructive and wasteful thinking.
The intellect is a powerful decision-making tool that will grow stronger with frequent use. Use the intellect to choose patience, discernment and courage in place of habitual negative reactions. Skip over popular gossip and distractions by being decisive and earn huge savings of time and energy.
Holding affirmative mental attitudes helps eliminate damaging negative self-talk and provides creative solutions for our human relationships.
The third of the soul’s faculties is the sanskaras, loosely translated as memory. We are what we remember. While one must recognise the lessons revealed through failures, positive personal memories are necessary for mental health.
A conscious effort should be made to substitute the cycling of past hurts and disappointments with a focus on life-affirming memories, aspirations or new learnings. At a deeper level, recalling the original divine virtues of the soul is transformative.
Although meditation is an activity that can stand alone, its ultimate purpose is yoga, that union with the one you consider to be God.
The consciousness must travel away from the body and connect with the Supreme Being. Focus and sustained concentration on God are required. For this one may visualise God as a point of light and energy.
The question of where, is also important. Where is The Supreme Soul? The intellect may be directed to a place beyond the physical universe that is of non-physical light.
It is beyond sound (nirvana), and can be labelled as Brahmlok or the Souls’ World. One may travel with the intellect and visualise the Supreme Being as a point of light in a realm of light that is outside the physical domain. Think on the many virtues of God. Appreciate the all-encompassing love, deep peace or eternal bliss.
You can converse or relate to Her/Him as Mother, Father, Guide and Friend. These are our original and eternal bonds, which are still within us somewhere deep in our sanskaras. Through relationship we can connect heart to heart with the Divine.
This combination of engagement over time, will result in yoga- the union with The Supreme Being. May IDY 2021 inspire you to remember your original state of peace and contentment, your identity as a member of the family of human souls, and remember God.
“Yoga Awakens the World”: Article on Yoga
21 June 2021
Yoga Awakens the World
by Yvonne Chirya Risely
In these current times, more and more people are learning and practicing yoga regularly as it is not costly, has many benefits and no side effects.
‘Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition’.
It embodies unity of mind and body, thought and action, harmony between human beings and nature and a holistic approach to health and well-being. Yoga has evolved as an alternative system of medicine and has become increasingly popular.
The 193 member United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), on December 11, 2014, approved by unanimity a resolution establishing June 21st as ‘International Day of Yoga’. The declaration came following a call for the adoption of 21st June as ‘International Day of Yoga’ (IDY) by the current Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi ji during his address to UN General Assembly on September 27th, 2014. In suggesting June 21st, which is the summer Solstice, as the ‘International Day of Yoga’, PM Narendra Modi had said that the date is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and has special significance in many parts of the world. The Solstice is considered to be a time when there is natural support for those pursuing spiritual practices.
Global leaders from more than 175 countries including the USA supported the resolution. It had the highest number of co-sponsors ever for any UNGA Resolution of this type. We know that we are in a state of dramatic change when we witness so many world leaders encouraging people everywhere to awaken to the benefits of yoga and to raise the world’s consciousness to truly make the world a better place.
Now six year’s later, you might be contemplating what kind of yoga to practice and to know if it is the right fit for you. The word Yoga itself means “union”. It refers to the union of individual consciousness, the soul, with the Universal Consciousness, often referred to as God. With the modern day emphasis on physical health and fitness, many people think of yoga only as physical exercises – asanas or postures – but these are only surface aspects. Yoga is a deeper practice and exercise which helps revitalize both the body and the soul.
There are many paths of Yoga that lead in various ways toward this spiritual goal. They include:
Hatha Yoga – a system of physical postures whose higher purpose is to purify the body rendering it fit for meditation.
Bhakti Yoga – all-surrending devotion through which one strives to see and love the divinity in every creature and in everything.
Karma Yoga – selfless service to others without attachment to the result.
Gyana Yoga – the path of wisdom which focuses on the awakening of the intellect (opening the third eye).
Mantra Yoga – the repetion of certain universal sounds representing a particular aspect of spirit i.e. Om Shanti – I am a peaceful soul.
Raja Yoga – the royal or highest path of Yoga, which combines the essence of all the Yoga’s and demonstrates connecting with God through the practice of meditation. In addition to knowing how to stand on your head, you also learn how to use your head!
Throughout the world around the date of the 21 of June, over 100 countries annually hold public programs. Representatives from the UN and prominent personalities including government ministers grace the occasion and give the message of the benefits of Yoga. These programs are attracting thousands of participants.

I am sending you all a big Om Shanti (greetings of peace) as we look forward to the International Day of Yoga on 21st June, 2021.
Yoga and meditation have many principles in common. Yoga, tends to deal with exercises that stretch and strengthen the body, and meditation focuses more on the spiritual aspects of life, and strengthening the soul. For each modality to be successful, one has to learn how to control the mind.
Taking the Breath
We talk about the breath of life… and yes, this works on a physical level… without breathing there is no life! But what is the breath of mind? At a spiritual level the breath of mind relates to the quality of our thoughts and therefore our experience of life. Inhale positive and powerful energy, and breathe in love and peace. As we generate those higher vibrational thoughts, then we are more easily able to exhale and expel those negative and stressful thoughts and emotions. We definitely don’t want those toxins to linger in our body or mind in any form.

The pandemic has touched us all through its devastating economic and social impacts. There has been a profound impact on our physical and psychological health. It has awakened underlying conditions which have been dormant and preceipitated a spiritual crisis. This has left many contemplating the meaning of life, our purpose, and what is truly important. The values and techniques of Yoga provide us with tools we need to cope. Yoga’s ancient practices help us attain healing, health and harmony. We now may choose what we reintroduce into our lives, how we shape our reality and how we better prepare for unexpected challenges. Creating a sacred space allows us to recognize the powerful beings we truly are. Through our collective resilience we can weave together a new world as one humanity. Join us to embrace our inner nature, our heartfelt connection, and the power of hope.
