On the 21st of June 2015 we saw the first International Day of Yoga. It was proposed by the Prime Minister of India, and was immediately sponsored by 177 countries, a record in UN history.
This news has made me feel real joy and hope. There are so many problems in the world, war, environmental catastrophy, health issues, social issues and many many unhappy, suffering people. The problems are global, the cause is humans and our dissatisfaction, greed, fear, hatred, envy. The solution, the only way, is to raise individual awareness. One by one people wake up, it's the only way to change.
We must begin with ourselves.
This news made me hopeful for change.
"Yoga: Harmony with Nature"
The film explores Yoga's origins, history, benefits, science, spread and embrace around the World. The film was produced to celebrate the UN's International Day of Yoga on June 21st 2015 and was inspired by the guiding words of India's Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi from his speech at the UN on 27th September 2014 to explore how human beings can learn to live in harmony with themselves, each other and nature through the practice of Yoga.
