The positive impact of this annual festival on the international community in sustaining Yogic traditions and bringing innovative ways of incorporating a Yogic lifestyle in daily life, is tremendous. "A true Yogic practice addresses all aspects of our personality. The Vedas say that we are not just a bunch of chemicals called this body. Our personality has got five sheaths or layers to it. Any disease then needs to be tackled in all these five layers. Yoga means Union of the individual consciousness with the Supreme Consciousness. When that Yog happens, everything in your personality will become aligned to give you good health at the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual levels," - Swami Mukundananda, Founder of the yogic system, "Yoga for the Body, Mind, and Soul"
