Patanjali to employ five lakh youngsters and five crore farmers in future
As yoga guru Baba Ramdev took the stage, the audience laughed at his witticisms, swayed to his devotional songs and cheered his nationalist remarks. The founder of Patanjali Yogpeeth, Uttarakhand, was speaking at Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana (S-VYASA yoga university), where he was felicitated.
Baba Ramdev said, "Yoga is my life and worship. Prosperity, on the other hand, is a by-product of practising yoga every day since I was nine years old."
The yoga guru said machines have taken over the jobs of the poor, and his brand, Patanjali, will employ five lakh youngsters and five crore farmers in the years to come.
He said, "There will come a time when international companies will exit India. That’s when machines will be replaced with people and the poor will have jobs once again. Wearing handmade clothes will become a reality and people will stop buying machine-made products."
Prime Minster Narendra Modi’s Yoga guru, HR Nagendra, also the chancellor of S-VYASA, said, "When the British came to India, they had the belief that there were only two levels of the mind — one where the mind is lazy, lethargic, silent and meditative and other when it is fast, sharp and brilliant. So anyone engrossed in meditation was considered worthless...It was much later that the distinction between a lazy and transcendent mind was made. Calming the mind is not being lazy. Instead, it is the third level of the mind, which is better than a sharp and fast mind."
