Ananda at the UN for the International Day of Yoga 2017

 

A couple of years ago, June 21st was declared International Day of Yoga.

“Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It is not about exercise, but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world, and nature.” — Narendra Modi, India’s Prime Minister’s declaration, on the founding of International Day of Yoga- June 21, 2015.

This year on June 21st, Ananda was invited to the United Nations to represent Yogananda’s teachings. Kyle McDonald, from our Rhode Island center, gave the presentation.
