On the 21st of June, the world will be observing the 8th International Yoga Day with great enthusiasm.
The theme of IDY-2022 is ‘Yoga for Humanity’.
Hon’ble PM Modi announced during the Mann Ki Baat that “Guardian Ring will be a very unique
programme. In this, the Movement of the Sun will be celebrated, that is, as the sun travels, we will welcome it through yoga from different parts of the earth. Indian missions in different countries will organize yoga programs at sunrise according to the local time there. The program will successively commence, following one country after another. The journey from east to west will go on continuously…and on these lines, it will proceed accordingly. Streaming of these programs will also be linked
one after the other, that is, it will be a kind of relay Yoga streaming event.”
The Guardian Ring programme will start from Fiji and ends in San Fransisco. The Guardian ring will
capture and weave together a digital feed of IDY programmes organized by Indian missions abroad. It will
string together selected missions across different time zones, into a continuous social media event of
about 18 to 20 hours duration.
As we are celebrating ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ in our country, ‘International Yoga Day’ will also
be organized at 75 major places in the country. Presently, the 100-day countdown leading to ‘Yoga Day’, is also underway; and programs based on personal and social efforts, have already begun three months ago.
