At the school entrance Arbor-vitae ( The Comman Thuja)  is welcoming  with its evergreen  leaves in dome shape .

While returning, their mind was refreshed and the brain was trained to identify trees with proper names and indeed they must have listened and felt what the plants have said:

 

“Here and there and all around

In forests, fields, lakes and seas we are found.

You will find us everywhere

Where there is sunshine, water and air.

Thick and thin, big and small

Some are short and some are tall.

Stems, leaves, flowers and fruits we bear

You can make use of all our ware

Just be gentle and kind to us

We will look after you without a fuss.

Mother nature’s gifts are we

How blessed you are, you see.

Subsequently , 21st June was declared as The International Yoga Day by the UNGA on 11th Dec., 2014. The world celebrated its first Yoga Day  on the 21st of  June , 2015 which proved to be India’s Vedic gift to the  entire  world, a symbol of the civilization that India represents.

                             With The International Yoga Day the whole  world made a reverential bow to the hallowed mental, spiritual and physical discipline handed down to us through generations Yoga survived centuries despite many  invasions  because of  its adaptability and eternal Vedic quality .

   When  yogic exercises go deeper , yoga starts converting into yog . The body, mind and soul become one and we start connecting to the cosmic wisdom . When  one gets completely connected to the wisdom , the real yog happens. The mind stops producing any  thought and there prevails infinite happiness.

                   India’s this ancient discipline became a uniting force around the world on Sunday, 21st June, 2015, cutting across religions , borders and differences as over 20 crore people  participated in events to mark the inaugural yoga day held in 192 countries .
