NEW DELHI: Yoga has now become a global festival, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It provides peace to the world and has served humanity in alleviating the suffering during the pandemic, he said, while attending the eighth International Yoga Day (IYD) celebrations organized in Mysuru, Karnataka. Around 15,000 people took part in the Yoga demonstration along with the prime minister.

“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,” Modi said.
