The Grand Yoga Lineages of India and the Grand Yoga Masters of India met in 2011, December, 4th and 5th, in Bengaluru / India – on the Art of Living Foundation Headquarters, by invitation of Shrí Shrí Ravi Shankar and the President of the Yoga Portuguese Confederation.
 
During this Summit was Proclaimed the World Yoga Day on the Solstice – June, 21st – the Day of Light and Wisdom associated to it – and with the support of the Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha, and the VYASA - Vivekánada Yoga University – it is a date that does not celebrate any human event, but is a Cosmic Auspice, a Day that highlights the relation between the Earth and the Sun, and by consequence with the Galaxy and the Cosmos, and it Is sang in all the Cultures that have always been unquiet with the observation and study of the Surroundings where they belong, in all times and in all continents.
 
The Summit was impressive not only because it was something that had never been done before, for on the History of India, the Grand Yoga Masters have never met (in India), but also for the grand plans for the personal development and World Peace that occur during this World Event.
 
High moments of this Summit were the Declaration of B.K.S. Iyengar: “… on my quality of the eldest Yoga Teacher from India, and the World, and as President of the only Yoga Institution created by the Government of India, the Yoga Teachers Association of India, and appointed by the Indian Government – proclaim the World Yoga Day on the Solstice June 21st”; and also the Proclamation made after the closing of the works by all the Grand Masters and Teachers present – enhanced with the vocalization of a continuous       / (OM), with all the present standing and holding hands.
 
The World Yoga Day – an initiative of the Yoga Portuguese Confederation and of its President, exists indeed, and it’s commemorated since 2001 / 2002 in Portugal, and on many others places in the World. The steps taken to make it official on the National and International (UNESCO / ONU) Instances now will be redoubled by the Yoga representatives of Portugal and India.
