The United Nations General Assembly declared June 20th as the International Day of Yoga. Addressing the UN General Assembly on 27 September 2014, the Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi had said: "Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day." On Dec 11, India's Permanent Representative introduced the draft resolution in UNGA. The draft text received broad support from 177 Member States, including USA, and the draft text was adopted without a vote. Government of India is planning to celebrate IDY 2020 in all the countries around the world. Embassy of India is planning to organize a series of events culminating on June 20, 2020 from 8:30AM to 10:00AM to celebrate the IDY.
