The agility of the 125 year Padma Awardee Yoga Guru Sivananda shows the prowess of Yoga
The Indian Civilization has given knowledge, skills and many gems for the welfare of the humanity, Yoga stands out to be one of the most powerful one. For a Materialistic World seeing 125 years old Yoga Guru Sivananda in such good shape should prove Yoga’s power to create a ‘SuperHuman’ and not just physically but spiritually as well.
The Power of Yoga
Yoga is not just a physical exercise, it is spiritual too. Yoga along with dharmic food and traditional practices helps in longevity of life and Guru Sivananda is the living proof of it. Yoga has been in practice in the Indian Civilization for ages and its health benefits are open secret but still to quote few obvious ones, yoga helps in breathing stabilization, lowers chances of heart attack, provides flexibility to the body among many others.
This spiritual practice of Yoga, which was only left to some yogis, has been revitalized by the ardent Yoga practitioner PM Modi. It is an open secret that PM Modi himself follows yogic traditions and promotes yoga at the national and international level. He has taken Yoga to the international audience through his untiring efforts.
The United Nation General Assembly (UNGA) in 2014 adopted 21st June as International Yoga day. The date is not random but according to Hindu beliefs, Adi Yogi (Shiva) started teaching yoga on this day.
Because of his deep rooted belief in the Hindu traditions, the Prime Minister respects the Sanyasis and Yogis. Before the Yogis, he always conducts himself like a shishya of the Guru and follows the ‘Guru Shishya Parampara’, bows down and gets the blessing of his Guru. Because of his untiring efforts for the betterment and promotion of Hindu traditions the Sanyasis and Yogis too adore their favorite Shishya PM Modi. The viral video of 125 year old Yoga Guru Sivananda bowing down in front of PM Modi and PM Modi reciprocating it testifies the mutual respect of Sanyasis and PM.
For Non-Hindus it is hard to understand such mutual respect, admiration and no superior feelings between PM Modi and Sanyasis/Yogis.
The world has finally accepted what was known to the Indians from time immemorial that, they don’t any weird sci-fi tool, laboratory test or gene altering to turn anyone into a ‘SuperHuman’ , they simply need to religiously practice YOGA.
