CJI CHandrachud Emphasizes Yoga’s Role in Personal and National Empowerment on Yoga Day

The event, which coincided with the 10th anniversary of International Yoga Day, was marked by reflections on the “four lessons of yoga” which, according to CJI Chandrachud, include Sadbhavna (Goodwill), Sashaktikaran (Empowerment), Siddhant (Principles), and Samanvay (Coordination). These principles, he noted, foster respect for all creatures, enhance personal and national power, influence lifestyles, and teach the coordination of breath with physical movements.

In a candid revelation, CJI Chandrachud shared a personal anecdote from a yoga session just three days prior to the event where he experienced a minor injury while performing Surya Namaskar. This incident, he mentioned, served as a humbling reminder of the need to approach yoga with respect and humility.

Highlighting his personal journey with yoga, the Chief Justice shared that he has been practicing for 26 years, incorporating asanas such as Aalom-Vilom, Kapalbhati, Tadasana, and Pawan Muktasana into his routine. Remarkably, his daily regimen begins at 3:30 AM, a discipline he credits for his physical and spiritual well-being.

The Chief Justice also paid tribute to his 90-year-old yoga instructor, Anant Limaye, affectionately known as Limaye Kaka, a retired banker from Pune, whose guidance has been instrumental in his yoga practice.
