World Yoga Day/ Music Day

The Yoga Sutras are credited to Adiyogi Lord Shiva. The yoga practices that started from Shiva have come to us through generations of Saptarishis, scholars, sages, and Gurus. According to architectural studies, the idol of Lord Shiva in the meditation posture is considered to be the oldest. There is also an idol of Mahavira Jain, meditating. Another basis of yoga is the meditation idol of Lord Buddha, this idol is considered world famous. According to another statement, credit for yoga is given to Lord Krishna. Among the many names of Lord Krishna, Yogeshwar is also worshiped. Even UNESCO has registered yoga as its intangible cultural heritage since 2016.

World Yoga Day is celebrated on the 21st of June every year. Sadguru Jaggi Basdev, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and the Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi is among the inaugural personalities of this Yoga Day which was started to be celebrated in 2014. This formula of Yoga Day has been established by the United Nations itself and yoga have been taken as the index of millennium development. The world community understands that development and prosperity are not possible without personal peace and health.

Yoga Studies in Nepal
The formal study of yoga and naturopathy is being taught in Nepal at Valmiki Vidyapeeth of Nepal Sanskrit University. The entrants are given 6 months of yoga and naturopathy training. Those who have graduated in any subject have also been approved for a two-year postgraduate course. Although the Curriculum Development Center has been teaching yoga, naturopathy, and Ayurveda as subjects of interest in classes 9 and 10 since 2051 BS, it has not been able to start due to a lack of graduates in this field. Today, we want to appeal to the youth to move forward by making yoga study a goal of life.

From billionaires to saints, we all need to answer with our hands on our chests; is there peace in our lives? Are we happy? Human nature is beyond self-control, it is a creature indulging in greed, lust, and indulgence for material gain, human beings are the only creatures in the world who spend their whole life on their grid of needs and security, and it does not apply to other creatures.

Nepal is considered to be the birthplace of yoga. As yoga practice and Ayurveda is a reliable and ancient treatment method, it is requested to bring them into regular practice for staying healthy.

By practicing yoga and understanding the importance of yoga, we are sure to be successful and healthy even in daily life and health. Yoga is essential for an egalitarian world, yoga is life, and let's study more about it, adopt it, and achieve a happy and peaceful life.

World Music Day

Although the concept of Music Day was introduced by American composer Joel Cohen in 1976, it was formally introduced in France in 1982. The day was first observed in France on June 21, 1981, according to French artist Maurice Fleuret Kosoch. Since then, every year on the 21st of June, 'World Music Day' has been celebrated. Music Day is now celebrated as a special festival in more than 100 countries around the world.

The slogan for this year's World Music Day 2023,
"Music on the intersections."
That is the confluence of yoga and music. World Music Day 2022 is being celebrated to listen to melodious music on World Yoga Day while practicing yoga.
