Yoga Guru Swami Ramdev inaugurated the meet
Swami Ramdev presented the different aspects of Yoga at the meet. Asking the people to raise Bharat to a land of spirituality by releasing it from the madness of caste and religion, Swami Ramdev said that the two main problems that we are facing now are the madness in the name of caste and religion.
The distinction of Brahmin, Kshathriya, Vaishya and Shudra should end. Everybody should be ready to work together just like the organs of the body work together. No philosophy which does not respect and honour the motherland can be accepted. A society which respects its motherland can be found anywhere in earth. There is no distinction of religion or caste in this. The slogan Bharat Mata Ki Jai is raised not for a religion but for the nation,” Swami Ramdev said.
