Embassy of India, Kuwait Celebrated the 8th International Day of Yoga

Embassy of India, Kuwait celebrated the 8th International Day of Yoga (IDY) at the iconic Red sandstone building of the Embassy on Tuesday, 21 June.

Delivering the inaugural remarks, Ambassador of India to Kuwait, His Excellency Shri Sibi George highlighting the importance of Yoga said that the Yoga is a product of Indian civilization and is an invaluable gift of ancient India to the world. He further said that Yoga is not a religion; it is a way of life that aims towards a healthy mind in a healthy body. Yoga does not discriminate; all people can practice it, regardless of their strength, age or ability. Yoga has the innate power to connect people and societies. Ambassador also said that Yoga transcends boundaries and brings everyone together and in its true essence is a unifying force.

Ambassador said that the main IDY 2022 event was held at Mysore in Karnataka today morning led by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi. He quoted Prime Minister’s remarks “Yoga brings peace for us. The peace from Yoga is not merely for individuals. Yoga brings peace to our society. Yoga brings peace to our nations and the world. And Yoga brings peace to our universe”. The celebrations in Kuwait were part of ‘The Guardian Ring’ programme of the Government of India which was a relay Yoga streaming event which captured and weaved together digital feeds of IDY programmes organized by Indian Missions/Embassies abroad. It showcased the IDY celebrations in 75 countries from East to West, with the movement of Sun, covering 16 time zones.

Embassy had been organizing various events, online and offline, in the run up to the IDY since last two months which included regular Yoga classes and sessions.
