"Now, it has become part of every person's life", he said in his address.

"Thank you to people across the world who took part in #YogaDay2017 programmes in their countries". In addition to fitness, wellness is important, the Prime Minister said, adding that Yoga is a medium to achieve wellness.

"Though India was trying hard to make yoga popular across the globe since 2011, we got success after the United Nations accepted Modiji's proposal in 2014 and declared June 21 as the World Yoga Day". "Today, there is no question mark over yoga in any part of the world. The practice, which connects body, mind and soul, has played a big role in binding the world too", he said.

In the presence of officials of Guinness World Record, Baba Ramdev conducted record breaking mega yoga performance at the GMDC ground. "There are many countries which do not know our language, traditions or culture, but the entire world is getting connected with us because of yoga". Fifty or sixty minutes should be enough to bring harmony to the body, mind and intellect.

A yoga camp was also organised in Northern Command Headquarters at Udhampur in which about 1,500 soldiers and women participated.

Addressing the enthusiastic and vociferous gathering, the Prime Minister conveyed his greetings from Lucknow to all those joining the Yoga Day celebrations across India. The crowd burst into cheers.

On International Yoga Day, Modi performed yoga with 100 students for about 20 minutes in Lucknow.

Modi left the venue around 7.25 am. He also expressed his gratitude to those who waited hours in the rain to perform yoga with the Prime Minister.

"The speciality of yoga is keeping the mind stable.it teaches the art of living with a healthy mind amidst the ups and downs of life", said Modi, visibly happy with the heavy turnout at the sprawling Rambai Ambedkar Maidan despite the inclement weather since early morning.
