International Conference on Yoga, Ayurveda & Spirituality (ICYAS 2013) will be held on January 6, 2013 at Bengaluru to foster world peace. Yoga gurus, Ayurveda experts and spiritual leaders will attend the day-long event in Bengaluru on January 6, 2013 at the Jnana Deepika Bhargavi Education Centre, Judicial Layout, in the northern part of the City.

There are three sessions covering Yoga, Ayurveda and Spirituality. It will conclude with a mass prayer for world peace in the evening. In addition to these, there will be demonstration of Yoga, free health check-up camps through Ayurveda and sale of books.

Swami Vivekananda Yoga Research & Holistic Health Trust, Bangalore, and Sri Ramanujam Mission Trust, Chennai have taken on the onus to organize the  ICYAS, which aims to create awareness about Yoga, Ayurveda and spirituality through such forums among all sections of society, including youths.

“Yoga has received widespread acceptance in the western world because of its immense benefits. Yoga has been endorsed globally to transform lifestyle. Unfortunately, people in India are yet to discover Yoga and Ayurveda and derive benefit out of them. Our aim is to ensure that people inculcate Yoga and Ayurveda, as a way of living,” said Yogi Devaraj, organising secretary, ICYAS, 2013.

Yoga, Ayurveda and Spirituality embodies the body, mind and soul. A healthy and balanced practice of Yoga and Ayurveda transforms an individual to create inner peace and at the macro level it would contribute to world peace. Our long-term objective is to contribute to world peace,” said Krishna Guruji, Chairman, International Healers’ Mission Trust & Core Committee Member, ICYAS’13.

“Current global  emphasis is on holistic healing. Yoga and Ayurveda amalgamated with spirituality is the perfect medicine for various disorders. We only hope that conferences such as ICYAS become the basis and platforms for holistic healing in the future. Expert practitioners of Ayurveda will emphasize the need for indigenous medicine systems and promote the same,” pointed out Manjunathswamy, core committee member, ICYAS’13.

Some of the important dignitaries attending the sessions include Prof. SARPV Chaturvedi Swamiji, Sri Ramanujam Mission Trust; Shrimad Jagadguru Shankaracharya & Sri Vidyabhinava Shankara Bharati Swamiji, Sri Avichinna Parampara Kudali Sringeri Mutt and Sri Nanjavadoota Swamiji Peetadipathi, Spatikapuri Mahasamsthana Mutt, Pattanayakahalli.

International delegates from over  30 countries, including Indonesia, Chile, Peru, Germany, Lithuania, USA and Columbia, will present scientific papers on latest innovation in Ayurveda and the effects of Yoga on the human body. As a prelude to the ICYAS, more than 800 pre-conference sessions on Yoga, Ayurveda and Spirituality have been held across the world.
