New Delhi: Heartfulness Institute on Friday said it has partnered with the Ministry of AYUSH and the United Nations Department of Public Information to host a global yogathon, that includes a call to make compassion contagious.
This event will showcase the need for compassion and will inspire people how to live a life of compassion.
The transformative powers of compassion have been chronicled extensively in all the great world scriptures.
"Compassion is contagious and can transmit faster than any virus, while making us stronger. International Day of Yoga is a very apt platform to spread the message of compassion, and celebrities from all walks of life have readily agreed to lend their voice to this cause," Kamlesh Patel (Daaji), Guide of Heartfulness, said in a statement.
"This international yogathon will help bring consciousness to the need for more elevated acts of compassion, allowing all our lives to be more peaceful and meaningful." (IANS)
