Just two days after International Yoga Day, eminent yoga guru Baba Ramdev said that his organisation, Patanjali Ayurved Limited will soon spend Rs 10,000 crore on Yoga research work in India.
“We are already spending a lot of money on Yoga research work, but we will soon start spending Rs 10,000 crore on it,” he said while addressing a gathering at the inaugural session of the two-day international conference on ‘Yoga for Body and Beyond’ here.
He also praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for getting Yoga placed on the international platform, and said that government funds for Yoga should be increased as the ancient Indian science has to be taken to the masses.
“It’s a big world. We will prepare one lakh Yoga teachers soon,” he said, and added that after it is done, it will benefit crores of people in the country.
