About Global Yog Alliance
What is Global Yog Alliance?
Global Yog Alliance is an international organization formed by the associations of yoga organizations in India and abroad under the leadership of Yogshiromani Dr. Gopal ji. Global Yog Alliance has been registered under Societies Registration Act of 1860 on 5th August, 2010 at Delhi it is also registered under section XII A and all donations given to Global Yog Alliance are exempted under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act, 1961. The alliance has brought three important component of the society that is Yog, spirituality and religion together for the first time.
The Global Yog Alliance has Continental Yog Associations, Associations from Various Countries, Yog Schools and Centers as its member. Apart from organizing different programs and activities Global Yog Alliance will ensure the correct practice of Yoga by bringing all its true exponents under a single umbrella where they can restore Yog to its correct interpretation and practice and provide the drugless, preventive, promotive and curative aspects of Yog, which would lead to the well being of all mankind.
Global Yog Alliance’s initiative is geared towards forming a rainbow of the real spiritual. The one that has been present for humanity since the beginning of Universe through its scientific roots, to the latest that governs the sci-fi global world of today.
GYA’s determination towards its endeavour, and the patience it has exhibited in maturing to initiate its run is analogically very significant as at around six years the child has its first interaction with the outer world through its schooling. At this level, GYA intends to initiate its MISSION with a zeal similar to kids venturing into school for first time.
In 2009, under the patronage of H.H. Jagat Guru Shankaracharya of Prayag Peeth and the Chairmanship of Yogashiromani Dr. Gopal Ji, it was unanimously decided that there was an urgent need for an umbrella organisation – Global Yog Alliance.
This responsibility was shouldered by Dr. Gopal Ji and Swami Shivananda Saraswati (Flavio), President of Italian Yog Federation. It was their concerted effort that gave birth to GYA, in which the execution was borne by Gopal Ji as he was the Indian counterpart and the institution had to be registered in India. Their initiative and zeal was well supported by Mr. Sandeep Marwah, President, Asian Academy of Film & Television, and Acharya Satyendra Narayan, President Confederation of World Religions & World Spiritual Parliament.
The Birth of the Idea: GYA
The idea of GYA was born during 18-20 September, 2009, at the International Yog Conference in Rome. A meeting of global delegates was held where it was decided that an umbrella organisation of Yog – Global Yog Alliance – be formed. This was to be registered in India to reiterate the fact that India was the birth place of Yog. The delegation at the International Yog Conference asked Swami Shivananda Saraswati ji (Flavio) and Dr. Gopal Ji to shoulder the responsibility of registering the umbrella institution in India.
What was of prime importance was to ascertain the Vision and Mission of GYA, as it was imperative to have a global context and should have the incisiveness to operate within the present global socio-economic scenario. It was keeping this view in mind that GYA envisaged on developing a holistic paradigmatic operational plan through its Vision and Mission.
The modern world, in the words of UN, strives toward a parameter developed as Sustainability Index. Sustainability Index has been acknowledged by UN agencies while taking into account human beings’ attempt to achieve all of their needs and aspirations via seven modalities: economy, community, occupational groups, government, environment, culture, and physiology and human sustainability can only be achieved by attaining sustainability in all levels of the seven modalities. The attainment of the 7 levels towards human sustainability is very intricately woven through the interstices of the thought governing the ascertainment of scientific operationalization of the concept of Sapt Chakra, which is fundamental to understanding the principle of Yog, which is a scientific procedure of step by step progression of an Individual Consciousness merging into the Collective Consciousness.
It was this outlook, which helped GYA arrive at their the Vision Statement of योगमयं विश्वम् कुरु, which is to be attained through its 4P powered Mission Statement. The 4Ps stand for Personality, Peace, Progress & Prosperity and the uniqueness it represents is that it operates at both, Individual and Collective Levels.
- Development and sustenance of Global Peace, Progress, Prosperity and Personality development linkages by Yog.
- Yog – development as a tool for disease free globe
- Efforts for planning and getting linked union budgets of medical/health with education and social allocations as long term policy globally
- Promoting Yog as a remedy and way of life for minimizing global violence
- Promoting Yog as an essential component of universal educational curricula
- Emphasis for uno resolutions for setting linkages of Yog with mankind welfare
- Promoting initiatives for overcoming barriers of social, cultural and religious discriminations through spread of traditional Yog
योगमयं विश्वम् कुरु
The principle which best explains GYA’s Vission Statement can be best explained as “A Human Initiative to lay the foundation of a Global Yog Movement for holistic Living”.
Yogamayam Vishwam Kuru reverbates with the sound that our entire Global Village should immediately start endearing to the principles where the world should resonate and reverberate with the vibrancy of Yog.
