Pondicherry State Chapter Committee of Indian Yoga Association and CYTER (Centre for Yoga Therapy, Education and Research) of Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth, Pondicherry paid rich tribute to the nation through an innovative and unique commemorative volume ‘AZADI KA AMRIT MAHOTSAV YOGASANA TRIBUTE’ showcasing 75 different Yogasanas to mark the 75th year of Indian independence. Each Asana performed by a member of the CYTER Team celebrates one year of Indian Independence. Every page also showcases appropriate quotations from traditional Yoga texts such as the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Patanjala Yoga Sutra, Hatha Pradipika etc.

The commemorative volume was officially released by Prof Subhash Chandra Parija, the Honorable Vice Chancellor of Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth at a solemn event held on the auspicious occasion of Vijayadasami, October 15, 2021 at SBV campus.

The guests were welcomed by Yogacharya Dr Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani, Director, CYTER and SPPPR Committee, IYA. In his address he highlighted the purpose of this event acknowledging the Hon VC Sir for initiating this presentation by sowing the thought of such possibility in our minds. He also expressed gratitude to the management and administrators for supporting all Yoga therapy, education and research activities of CYTER.

Felicitation was offered by Prof AR Srinivasan, Hon’ble Registrar, SBV who praised the Team CYTER for always rising up to the occasion. “Health is wealth, and this publication will enable more and more of our fellow countrymen and women to manifest health and happiness in their lives”, said he.

Prof SC Parija expressed his delight by congratulating the team and praised the efforts put in to bring out this commemorative volume aptly now. He admired the skill of all the demonstrators and commended their such expertise and grace exhibited in each and every page. He said that this would motivate practitioners to update their skill levels and strengthen individuals efforts to continue practicing Yoga regularly to attain these postures. He said, “One of India’s greatest strengths is its vibrant culture and Yoga is a priceless jewel of our beloved Nation. When we share our gift of Yoga with the world we are sharing a living tradition that promotes salutogenesis, wellness and abundance.” He reiterated SBV’s commitment towards the innovative integration of traditional systems of healing such as Yoga with the modern empirical medical science. “Integrative medicine is the future, and we at SBV through CYTER and its services over the past decade have created a working model that can be adopted by others worldwide”, said he.
