‘Art of Living’ founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says that He is against yoga being forced on anyone. He claimed that surya namaskar is not performed for the sun, but is for the well being of the individual. “You don’t have to consider the sun as god. Asanas you do is not for the sun, but for you. All 5 systems are rejuvenated,” he said. He told that Yoga doesn’t belong to any particular religion, just as breath doesn’t have any religion. Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani are ways to lead a healthy life. He also said that those who chose the path of violence don’t give peace to their souls and revealed that he had invited IS leaders for talks, but with little response.
