WHY INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY IS IMPORTANT



While we look around, one thing very apparent to all is that, most of the issues in the personal, family, social and professional lives of individuals are created by emotional imbalances, which can be represented as weak Emotional Intelligence. The next villain is health problems. All of us know that emotional imbalances and health problems are first cousins. World spends enormous billions for health, welfare and harmony; whereas, individuals can do it for no cost. One effective way is practicing yoga. Its postures provide systematic exercise and stimulation, not only to your muscles, but also to every organ, every cell in your body and most importantly to your mind!

A lot of debates are being aired on the mantras being recited as part of yoga practice. I would say, sound is one of the means through which the universe transmits energy. You being a part of the universe, when you produce a sound that synchronizes with the universe, then you are in HARMONY with the universe. Which is that sound? You need not search for it, because your ears can realize that sound which goes deep into your mind and body and one that does not disturb others. If you need some words to bring that sound out of your mouth, put any meaningful words that will be appreciated by people around you.

Therefore let us practice Yoga and help the world to live in harmony.

Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP), Kerala

Higher Education, General Education and Local Self Government Departments of Kerala State Government in India have jointly launched an Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP) as part of State Skill Development Programme to enhance the employability of students passing out of Higher Secondary Schools (+2) as well as Arts and Science Colleges in the state.
Historically Kerala has been a prominent supplier of skilled human resource to the rest of the world.
