The Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga will celebrate the Yoga Mahotsav to commemorate the 50 days countdown to the International Day of Yoga at Shri Bhawani Niketan Shiksha Samiti, Sports Ground, Jaipur on May 2, 2023.
The Union Ministry of Ayush is organising the event with active support and cooperation of the state government of Rajasthan, local authorities and various institutions with an objective to boost Medical Value Travel in Rajasthan through Yoga
Addressing a press about the event, Union Ayush Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said, “Under the foresighted leadership and guidance of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi the International Day of Yoga (IDY) has become a benchmark event, which is celebrated nationally and globally with ever increasing enthusiasm. As earlier, this year’s IDY 2023 will also witness many firsts, foremost being the demonstration of Common Yoga Protocol (CYP) in the Arctic and Antarctic region.”
He added, “Thousands of foreign tourists come to Rajasthan annually and take services of many Yoga institutions for learning Yoga and Yoga therapies. I see enormous opportunities for these Yoga institutions in Medical Value Travel and spiritual holidaying. Further, the Government of India is promoting village tourism. Yoga gels perfectly with village tourism in Rajasthan. I am sure tomorrow’s mass demonstration will help give a fillip to enthusiasm for Yoga in Rajasthan.”
Sonowal said, “This year, the Ministry of Ayush is also exploring the possibility of organising Common Yoga Protocol (CYP) demonstrations at important ports across the globe covering all oceans. For this unique 'Ocean Ring for Yoga' program consultation is ripe with the Ministry of External Affairs, Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways, Ministry of Defence and Indian Navy.”
