There should be integration in allopathic and Ayurvedic – Vij
The AYUSH minister also said that there should be integration between allopathic and Ayurvedic medicine, the tussle between them should end because we have to provide better treatment to the concerned patient. He also said that our elders already knew that our ancient Ayurveda method like turmeric, fennel, and cinnamon has medicinal properties, by using these we used to avoid getting sick, that is, our race has survived till today. He also said that the way a doctor tests before prescribing allopathic medicine, similarly Ayurvedic medicines should also be tested, it should be tested scientifically, that means Ayurveda should be promoted.

Sun is the source of power – Vij
He said that the sun is the source of power, whatever power or energy is on this whole earth, the source is the Sun. The sun runs us by becoming the life light inside us, the energy and power that gives to the trees and plants is the sun itself, that is, all the sources of energy on this earth like diesel, petrol, coal or others, the source of energy is the sun. And now electricity is being generated directly by installing solar panels. He said that in this budget, the Haryana government has laid emphasis on green energy, that is, pollution-free energy, that is, make this earth again as it was before. Sun has a big role in that, he added.
Surya Namaskar was made by combining many yoga asanas – Vij
In relation to Surya Namaskar, the AYUSH Minister said that Surya Namaskar's antithesis is that I bow down to you Sun, it is a compound process. Surya Namaskar has been made by adding many yoga asanas, in which there are 12-13 asanas. Continuous work is being done by the government to promote yoga. Yoga is a means of connecting the mind, intellect and body, and if these three are connected, then the union of the soul with the divine takes place.
The direct meaning of yoga is to join – Vij
Establishing a dialogue with the people, he said that we are sitting in the stadium, our mind is here, our attention is somewhere, we are divided and scattered, so 100 percent energy cannot be transmitted in such a situation. Whatever we have to do, we have to do it 100 percent, whatever work we do in life, we do it 100 percent. Sh. Vij said that Yoga simply means to connect; Yoga teaches us how to unite the mind, intellect and body in one thread. The person who wears it, not only can perform excellent yoga here, but whatever stage of life he stands on, he will be 100% successful. Emphasizing on the action of yoga, Sh. Vij said that if we become its seeker and practice it, then no one can stop us from rising in life.
The Ayush Minister also said that Yoga has a scientific meaning as well. You must have seen how agile a small child is, the circulation of blood in his veins goes on unopposed, but as a man grows up, his eating habits, lifestyle, posture, medicines, wrong eating habits, obstructions start to arise in his body due to intoxication etc. Blood cannot flow completely in the blood vessels that are the root of all diseases. He said that all the yogasanas i.e. there are 84 asanas and each yoga asana has its own goal that by putting pressure on the body part, the flow of blood is to be corrected from there. When a man's body becomes free from obstruction, then by doing yoga, his body again becomes like the agile body of a child.
