Modi releases commemorative stamp on Yogoda Satsanga Society
New Delhi, March 7 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday released a commemorative stamp on the centenary celebrations of the Yogoda Satsanga Society (YSS) of India, and appreciated Swami Paramahansa Yogananda, the founder of YSS, for spreading the message of Indias spirituality in foreign shores.
Addressing an event here, the Prime Minister lamented that some people link spirituality with religion and stressed that India’s strength lies in its spirituality.
“India’s spirituality is India’s strength. But unfortunately some people link spirituality with religion. The two are very different,” he said.
Describing yoga as the entry point to spirituality, Modi called upon the people to make it part of their life.
“Once an individual develops an interest in yoga and starts diligently practising it, it will always remain a part of his or her life,” he added.
