Allport (1937) defined personality as ‘the dynamic organization within the individual of those psycho-physical systems that determine his unique adjustment to his environment”. In commonplace, personality is an integral form of emotion, cognition, behavior and communication skills of an individual. As per yoga psychology, personality is the composite form of physique, mind, emotion and spirit. Emotive, rational, dynamic and volitional are four personality types as per yoga psychology. Yoga is a lifelong process of understanding holistic personality; managing physique, mind, emotion and spirit to awake human potentials and mobilize them for the collective welfare. Imbalances in the mind create mental conflicts (anxiety, stress, depression) leading to deep psychological problems called psychic impressions. Yogic systems of practices deal with these imbalances.
Asanas, cleansing techniques, diet and fasting help to be physically fit, balanced and harmonized. Pranayama, mudras and bandhas are ways to channel the physical forces, providing the opportunity to deal with the manifest mind (Saraswati, 2001). Prayer, donation, chants, nad and swar sadhana nurture emotions and spirit. The personality development programs stands for the inculcation of all mind-body-spirit practices for eliminating morbidities and imbalances from all four dimensions of human existence to optimize feeling, thinking, doing and communication for performance excellence.
