Chandigarh: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday urged the people to embrace yoga for better physical and mental health.
 
“Make yoga a part of your life,” the prime minister told thousands of yoga enthusiasts here on the occasion of the International Yoga Day. 
 
“Just as the mobile phone is now a part of your life, make yoga too a part of your life,” he said, drawing applause. 
 
In his brief address, the prime minister said the International Yoga Day had become a mass movement like no other in the world.
 
 
The UN last year declared June 21 as the International Day of Yoga.
 
Underlining that yoga was not a religious activity, Modi said it helped to control the mind and maintain a healthy body for a healthy balance between the two.
 
Yoga, he said, helped people to lead a disciplined life.
