Swarved is the science of prana or breath, pranayam is a part of that and yoga is a complete science in itself, said Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday.
Addressing the event to celebrate the 98th-anniversary of Sadguru Sadafaldeo Vihangam Yog Sansthan in Varanasi today, Adityanath said, "We are taking our Indian culture to heights under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We also celebrate the International Yoga Day on June 21 every year which has been started by PM Modi."
"Swarved is the science of prana or breath, pranayam is a part of that and yoga is a complete science in itself," Adityanath said.
The Chief Minister further lauded the presence of PM Modi on the occasion and welcomed him to address the 98th-anniversary celebrations of Sadguru Sadafaldeo Vihangam Yog Sansthan in Varanasi.
