International Day of Yoga 2018 Program

Jun 21, 2018

Today’s valedictory function of International Day of Yoga (21st June 2018) by Sadguru Mangeshda Kriya yoga foundation was the climax of the week long initiative to reach out and make 25 lac people participate in yoga practice across India along with INO.

The program started with the achievements of H.H. Sadguru Yogiraj Sri Sri Dr. Mangeshda and SMKYF. There was a panel discussion with panelists such as Shri Narendra Kunder (coach of the winning India Kho Kho team) and Shri Laxman Sawant (coach Malkambh). This was moderated by Sadguruji and the interaction was really wonderful. The audience saw how the panelists faced and overcame hardships to reach the place where they are today. The life journey was similar to Sadguruji’s as He too had fought severe hardships in His early days. The panelists beautifully answered the questions on future of these games of Indian origin. The next on the panel was Dr Satish Modh, Director VESIM and author of many best seller books. He displayed great oratory skills and shared his successful journey from an engineer to an educationist. On being asked by Sadguruji to comment on the current generation, he replied that it is one of the best generations as they are more mindful and conscious of various things including spirituality than earlier generations due to huge access to knowledge thanks to technology. The discussions were really charming. The audience was lucky enough to get the pearls of wisdom from Sadguruji’s interaction, a lot to learn from His life journey and how He overcame obstacles to reach the pinnacles of success.

The program ended with two brilliant performances. One was the yoga demonstration by students of Mahatma Gandhi Mission school which was absolutely brilliant. The way kids performed was a proud moment for their parents and happiness for the audience. The demonstration was guided by Sadguruji and great efforts by Fayaz Jamadar, their coach. Aarambh, a unique yoga ballet was performed by the Kriyabaans of SMkYF. The entire performance was designed and choreographed by Sadguruji and it was a breathtaking performance. Both performances got a standing ovation from the audience who went home after experiencing one of the best programs of SMKYF till date.
