International Day of Yoga संस्कृत मंत्र से, योग का महत्व

पतंजलि प्रार्थना

योगेन चित्तस्य पदेन वाचां
मलं शरीरस्य च वैद्यकेन ।
योऽपाकरोत्तमं प्रवरं मुनीनां 
पतञ्जलिं प्राञ्जलिरानतोऽस्मि ॥

हिंदी में अनुवाद:

मन की चित्त वृत्तियों को को योग से, वाणी को व्याकरण से और शरीर की अशुद्धियों को आयुर्वेद द्वारा शुद्ध करने वाले मुनियों में सर्वश्रेष्ठ महर्षि  पतंजलि को में दोनों हाथ जोड़कर नमन करता हूँ।

इस श्लोक को योगाभ्यास के शुरू में गाया जाता है।

‘योग’ शब्द संस्कृत से लिया गया है जिसका अर्थ है जुड़ना या एकजुट होना

श्री नरेंद्र मोदी द्वारा पहल की गई थी, यह दुनिया के लिए भारत की तरफ से उपहार है इसलिए आज योग, सिर्फ भारत में ही नहीं बल्कि कई अलग अलग-अलग देशों में प्रसिद्ध हो चुका है।

अंतरराष्ट्रीय योग दिवस के लिए श्री नरेंद्र मोदी के शब्द:

योग भारत की प्राचीन परंपरा का एक अमूल्य उपहार है। यह मन और शरीर की एकता का प्रतीक है; विचार और कार्य (क्रिया); संयम और पूर्णता; मनुष्य और प्रकृति के बीच सामंजस्य; स्वास्थ्य और कल्याण के लिए एक समग्र दृष्टिकोण, इन सबका प्रतीक है। यह सिर्फ व्यायाम नहीं है, बल्कि स्वयं को खोजना, दुनिया और प्रकृति के साथ खुद का सामंजस्य बनाकर रखना है। हमारी प्रगति के लिए और स्वास्थ्य के लिए, हमें हमारी जीवन शैली को बदलना होगा और चेतना पैदा करनी होगी। चलो! हम अंतर्राष्ट्रीय योग दिवस को अपनाने की दिशा में काम करें।

श्री नरेंद्र मोदी

मैं भी आप सभी को बस यही संदेश देना चाहूंगी कि हम शारीरिक स्वास्थ्य, मानसिक स्वास्थ्य और आध्यात्मिक प्रगति के लिए प्रयास करें। योग को शुरू करें।

Translation in English:

I bow down with folded palms to Sage Patanjali, the most exalted among the contemplative sages, which is removed impurity of the mind-content through Yoga, of speech through grammar and of the body through Ayurveda.

It is the gift of India to the world; it was taken the initiative by Shree Narendra Modi, that’s why Yoga is famous worldwide.

Words of Shree Narendra Modi for international yoga day:

Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. It is not about exercise but about discovering the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and nature. Changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness can help in wellbeing. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.


I convey this message to all of you that let’s work on our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing! Let’s start Yoga!

Mirror of Mind

(English translation of my Gujarati article Man no Ariso) મનનો અરીસો

We look for our physical appearance in the mirror every day, but do we look towards our mental state? We always pamper our body. Have we ever seen our mind?

Our happiness is locked in the mirror of our mind. If you want to search the key, there is one condition, you have to practice solitude. You have to go within and try to recognise your desires and thoughts. We are used to following a people-pleasing mentality rather than focusing on our thought process. 

The need of our heart is expressiveness though we do not fulfil it. Hence, we create a mess with our emotions.

  • What you like – Express it.
  • Whatever you dislike – Express it with politeness.
  • What you love to wear – Wear it.
  • Whatever you dislike wearing – Please do not choose it.
  • What you love to eat – Have that kind of food.
  • What you hate to eat – Ignore that kind of food.

Our actions are the opposite. We speak to please people, not to please ourselves. We choose that outfit which is not suitable for us then we start to blame on weight, material quality and making misery out of it. We choose restaurants for dinner parties to show off. These actions take us far away from getting the mirror. We accidentally wear a sophistication mask.

To get happiness, we should train our mind. We should understand heart’s wishes and train our mind to fulfil those wishes. Let the mind realise about wishes. Create rhythm between your heart and mind to get a mirror of mind for your happiness. Give an effort for something good.

In the journey towards self-reflectiveness, our biggest obstacle is a people-pleasing perspective. Whatever we like, we don’t do it and whatever we do, we don’t like it. This is the root of our sophistication attitude. We wear a sophisticated mask every time, the mask takes place of the mirror.

In the journey towards self-reflectiveness, our biggest obstacle is a people-pleasing perspective. Whatever we like, we don’t do it and whatever we do, we don’t like it. This is the root of our sophistication attitude. We wear a sophisticated mask every time, the mask takes place of the mirror.

We should take a stand for our happiness on our own. We should take responsibilities to fulfil our wishes, dreams or favourite activities rather than being dependent on our parents, spouse, friends or relatives. At certain age or period, we should be emotionally independent, we can’t afford to be always emotionally dependent on others. Sometimes, dependency leads to despondency.

We always check our outer beauty in the mirror same as we should check our inner beauty in the mirror of our mind. Don’t wear a sophistication mask. Solitude helps to get the mirror of the mind, the mind’s mirror is the source of your happiness.

  • The habit of self-reflection leads you towards a mirror of the mind.
  • The habit of people-pleasing leads you towards a sophistication mask.

Spend some time for yourself. Start the journey for self-reflectiveness, analysis your behaviour, attitude, perceptions and choices in life. Ask a question to yourself – Am I living that kind of life in the present which I want to live? It will help in other areas of your life as well like profession, managing relationships and family time. If you are happy then you can make others happy. Mental health should be your priority. The more mentally healthy you are, the more healthy your relationships with your near and dear ones. Your mental health depends on getting a mirror of the mind and avoiding a sophistication mask.

  • Don’t wear a sophistication mask.
  • Find out the mirror of the mind.

The complexity of mind and life

MIND! The mind is a source of power, whatever we want to do and want to achieve, we need to train our mind, we can achieve it through the proper attitude and willingness towards the goal attainment.

By reading the above paragraph, the mind generates thought, how to do so? The answer is simple, our mind works on the repetitive actions performed by us, the mind just processes the thinking. In short, the process is whatever we see, we observe, we feel, we live, and whatever we do our mind absorbs it and starts the process of thinking, repetitive thinking of certain manner, it becomes our philosophy or mentality, that leads to continuously perform those things and convert it in a habit and eventually it becomes our lifestyle.

We know the habit of mind like stereotype thoughts. That’s why we should think about what we want in our life. If we are not satisfied with our life then give a red signal to our mind that to act differently, think differently.

We should develop a habit to monitor our thought process from time to time. As our mentality or thoughts are generated with our surroundings which includes our parents, friends, peers etc. We develop this through observation, but the most important question: Am I happy or not by my thoughts? If the answer is “Yes” then we certainly living the good life but what if the answer is “No”, then certainly we are not on the right track it’s like we are following everyone like a sheep, with no aim or goals in the life, because of this we just run to strive for a life with the stereotype thought, now it demands the change in the thought process which certainly leads to a better life.

The five-step process to change the thought process:

Step – 1:

Start with preparing the list of the things you want in your life, what is your goal, what you want to be and what you like to do most. By preparing the list of the things and starts working in that direction, it creates the pattern of the thoughts, so the mind will be free from unnecessary thoughts.

Step – 2:

Following the first step, you will aware of your actions and thoughts. This is the state of self-awareness. Self-awareness of whatever we are doing in our life is relevant or not. Is it productive or not? Is it towards our ambition or not? Is it gives happiness and peace or not etc.

Some people are a victim of negative thoughts, over-ambitious about material life. For example Branded things, cars, money power, high status in society, jobs in big companies. Yes, it is good to think like this and necessary to achieve materialistic things. But only thinking about materialism, is a phobia of negativity, falls into jealousy, dissatisfaction, show off, cunningness, fear are the roots of negativity. Be aware, it is not the right track.

Step – 3:

Find out your interest area. If you already know- start working on it. Those who’ve already started – congratulations mate! There is a choice for you to convert your interest area into your profession, then you would love your work, it is the ultimate reality in life that we must earn money for the welfare of our life, by hook or crook, we must financially stable. So, choose a profession which we love to work. that will give us immense peace and satisfaction we will enjoy our time. Never get tension about workload, never feel frustration about tasks as we choose what we like to do. This leads to an energetic state. Once we start practising in our favourite area, the money will follow us. This is magic indeed!

Step – 4:

Give time to your hobby, this is very important for refreshment, the mind loves the change in a day, it gets boredom if we do just one or two tasks repeatedly, create your routine in such a way that can give you satisfaction and full of life. You will feel cheerful if you follow your hobbies.

Step – 5:

Take care of your health, physical as well as mental health. Practice yoga, meditation. Make it a habit that will give you a vision in life.

Implement the above steps and set your complexity of mind systematically. It is up to you where you stand, where you fit in a specific aspect. Search it and try to implement it. Train your mind in that direction in which you want to make your journey.

By systematic thinking, you never get confused about different walks of your life. First, make yourself clear so that you never confused, even you become a better person by the time, will more enjoy with your family, friends, your loved ones and fulfil your responsibilities with joy.

A rhythmic thought process balances your life by performing multiple aspects like profession, hobby, health, family, friends etc. Have contentment in all walks of your life that will eventually grow your inner beauty.

This is all about the mind, life and yourself. Complex but simple itself by implementing!
