New Delhi: On the occasion of seventh International  Yoga Day, Prime Minister Narendra  talked about the role played by Yoga during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

He said Yoga has proved a source of strength and poise for people during this difficult time.

He pointed out that it was easy for countries to forget Yoga Day during the pandemic as it is not intrinsic to their culture but, instead, enthusiasm for Yoga has increased globally.

One of key ingredient of yoga is fortitude in the face of adversity.

"When pandemic appeared, no one was ready from the point of view of capabilities, resources or mental toughness. Yoga helped people to muster confidence and strength to fight with the pandemic world over," Modi said.

The Prime Minister recalled how frontline Corona warriors made Yoga their shield and made themselves strong through yoga and how people, doctors nurses took to Yoga to deal with the effects of the virus.

Instances of yoga sessions conducted by doctors and nurses in the hospitals appeared everywhere.

The Prime Minister noted experts are stressing the importance of breathing exercises like pranayama and anulom-vilom for strengthening our respiratory system.
