.......... As such there is nothing wrong in holding a competit�on on the
qualitative presentation of the yoga�asanas.
The judges also should have a good background practically on the
subject for right and impartial judegment.
According to Lord Patanjali, the competitors should have a perfect
body, consisting of beauty and form, grace and lovliness and ability in
attracting people towards its practice, strength and their bodies hard
and shining like a diamond and soft as a flower according to the situations
RUPA LAVANYA BALA VAJRA SAMHANATVANI KAYASAMPAT III.47
They should be thorough compactness and thorough integration
of oneness from the Self to the Skin and from the Skin to the Self as a
single unit involving the body, senses of perception, mind, intelligence, consciousness and conscience.
One who presents with these required qualities should be
declared as a winner. Their presentation must be very natural with
innocence and humility rather than pride and arrogance. Then I
consider such comptietions as healthy. It should be competit�on on the
artistic level and not on body cult.
I Wish all the participants good luck by keeping up the commands
as advised by our great Sage Patanjali in their presentations.
