Sri Aurobindo’s third dream…

On Aug 15, 1947, when India became free, Sri Aurobindo talked about his dreams for the new India. Among other things, he said…

Sri Aurobindo

….The third dream was a world-union forming the outer basis of a fairer, brighter and nobler life for all mankind. That unification of the human world is under way; there is an imperfect initiation organised by struggling against tremendous difficulties. But the momentum is there and it must inevitably increase and conquer.

Here too India has begun to play a prominent part and, if she can develop that larger statesmanship which is not limited by the present facts and immediate possibilities but looks into the future and brings it nearer, her presence may make all the difference between a slow and timid and a bold and swift development. A catastrophe may intervene and interrupt or destroy what is being done, but even then the final result is sure.

For unification is a necessity of Nature, an inevitable movement. Its necessity for the nations is also clear, for without it the freedom of the small nations may be at any moment in peril and the life even of the large and powerful nations insecure. The unification is therefore to the interests of all, and only human imbecility and stupid selfishness can prevent it; but these cannot stand for ever against the necessity of Nature and the Divine Will.

But an outward basis is not enough; there must grow up an international spirit and outlook, international forms and institutions must appear, perhaps such developments, as dual or multilateral citizenship, willed interchange or voluntary fusion of cultures. Nationalism will have fulfilled itself and lost it militancy and would no longer find these things incompatible with self-preservation and the integrality of its outlook.”

It is in keeping with this spirit of oneness that Sri Aurobindo sees taking hold of the human race, that Yoga Alliance International aims to create a world-wide community of persons dedicated to authentic Yoga traditions, joined by the commonality of Spirit.


Inspired by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, YAI’s mission is to create a world-wide network of people and institutions devoted to the cause of Yoga.The Mother & Sri Aurobindo

YAI’s mission:

– create a world-wide network of Yogic minded people and institutions, regardless of affiliation or tradition

– provide a platform for the encouragement of new Masters of Yoga

– encourage research and innovation in applying Yoga techniques to the complex problems faced by modern man

– establish an Yoga Institution that is open to all traditions.


What we need more than ever before is a network of dedicated, like-minded people devoted to the cause of personal and societal transformation. Without personal transformation, it is idle to talk of changing the world. The network adds energy to our efforts at personal transformation, and we could, if we tried hard enough, soon transform the world beyond recognition.

The YAI community has members from around the world: from Africa, from Asia, from Europe,from America…

There are many ways for you to network:

  • Become a Certified Yoga teacher, or get your Institution recognized. This simple process gives your work recognition and opens you out to the professional world.
  • Visit our web-sites, and get in touch with other like-minded people.
  • Take part in our events, and strengthen your network by interacting directly with people.

We are very happy to announce the appointment of Mrs. Tran Thi Diem Huong as Chairperson for YAI South East Asia. We look forward to receiving her valuable guidance on spreading authentic Indian Yoga traditions in the region.

Mrs. Tran Thi Diem Huong was elected Miss Jewel in Vietnam in 2009. She is now married and a proud mother of three. Her loving and joyful nature combined to her interest in beauty and well being, naturally lead her to turn to Yoga.

Mrs. Tran Thi Diem Huong is an eminent member of the executive committee of the Vietnamese Yoga Federation and a successful YAI registered Yoga Teacher, having studied the science of Yoga under direct guidance of Swami Vidyanand. Since 2017, Huong Anh Fitness and Yoga Centres offer very successful Yoga Alliance International certified 200 Level Teacher Trainings and are willing to expand throughout Vietnam.
