Asserting that yoga is a strong uniting force across geographies and boundaries, the NSF director said science and yoga are in synergy towards the prosperity of the mind and body.
As part of the celebrations, a common yoga protocol session was conducted which saw enthusiastic participation from those present.
In the emerging post-Covid scenario, yoga is helping build resilience, health, togetherness, compassion and happiness, he said.
With the United States, yoga is deepening the vital people-to-people link and connect, which is at the core of the India-US bilateral partnership guided by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Joe Biden, Sandhu added.
These include events at the iconic Times Square in New York, Niagara Falls, Golden Gate National Park in San Francisco, California Museum, Sacramento, Crown Point Park in San Diego, Newtown Park in Atlanta, Grant Park in Chicago, Mahatma Gandhi Memorial of North Texas in Dallas, Discovery Green in Houston and the River Walk in San Antonio.
In the run up to the International Yoga Day 2022, several curtain-raiser events were organised by the embassy and the consulates across the United States.
