The Yoga demonstrations will also be held by various educational, social, political, cultural, religious, corporate and other civil society organisations and will be attended by crores of people across the country. Prime Minister`s Yoga programme at Mysuru is also part of the novel programme `Guardian Yoga Ring` which is a collaborative exercise between 79 countries and United Nations organisations along with Indian Missions abroad to illustrate Yoga`s unifying power that surpasses National boundaries.

As the sun apparently moves from the east to the west across the world, the Mass Yoga Demonstrations in the participating countries, if seen from any one point on Earth, will seem to be happening one after the other, almost in tandem, thus underlining the concept of `One Sun, One earth`. This innovative programme will be telecast live on DD India starting from 3 AM IST (telecast from Fiji) till 10 pm IST (telecast from San Francisco USA) on June 21.
