"Our gurus have said...yoga brings peace for us. The peace from yoga is not merely for individuals. Yoga brings peace to our society. Yoga brings peace to our nations and the world. And, Yoga brings peace to our universe. This might feel like an extreme thought to someone but Indians have answered this with a simple mantra -- This whole universe starts from our own body and soul. The universe starts from us. And, Yoga makes us conscious of everything within us and builds a sense of awareness," he said.
Modi also explained how yoga can help build peace in the environment. He said yoga helps in creating self-awareness and awareness of the world. When an individual becomes aware of himself and his body, he begins to spot things that need to be changed -- both in himself and in the world. There may be an individual problem or global challenges like climate change and international conflicts, and Yoga makes us conscious, competent and compassionate about these challenges.
"Millions of people with inner peace will create an environment of global peace. That is how Yoga can connect the people and countries, and that's how Yoga can become a problem solver for all of us," PM Modi said in Mysuru.
