Yoga is Life itself and must be incorporated in our every-day values, life-styles and in the way we see the world. However, to choose a International Day of Yoga, especially adopting a date with such global and natural features as the solstice and gathering every part of the world in this spiritual egregore is a divine blessing to all of us and to all beings. We are grateful to Jagat Guru Amrta Súryánanada Mahá Rája for this initiative and for mobilizing so many throughout the world for a meeting with oneself and with peace and harmony among all beings in the light of Yoga.
