Millenary wisdom revealed that: “what is here (in the inner universe) can be found anywhere outside of us (in Macrocosm) and what is not here cannot be found anywhere else”. Therefore, it was noticed that, for example, if a person is upset, this inner state can be easily noticed, by somebody who has the necessary experience, in the bodily attitude of the respective person. Practically, all our inner states manifest specifically through our bodily attitudes. In the same way when somebody is happy, that person’s body is relaxed and the attitude reflects this state. This observation becomes useful in order to be able to “read” somebody’s inner state by their bodily attitude.

The judgment goes against the Swedish Supreme Court's decision on 11 October 2005 to assign Bivolaru political asylum in Sweden based on fear for his safety and well-being of an extradition to his country.
Main Prosecutor Anette Swedow declared on 21 October 2005: "The final decision is based on that with a surrender Bivolaru to Romania risking that he will be deported, persecuted, because of the spiritual aspects he uses in yoga movement."
The trial in Romania has lasted 8 years, moved from court to court and gone about 3 times after two acquittals because the prosecution was not an acquittal of Bivolaru the right message to send to the public. Bivolaru case was a key issue for the corrupt rulers of Romania, which is a disgrace to a modern European legal community. The judgment merely confirms the growing distrust of the country's legal system among human rights organizations, European parliamentarians and other opinion.
