The incidence of anxiety & mood disorders is estimated to be over 25% around the world. Yoga Nidra may be one such technique at the same path & also an altered state of consciousness that is neither sleep nor awake, concentration nor hypnotism.  AIM & OBJECTIVES: 1. To assess the impact of Yoga Nidra on Mental health. 2. To encourage the practice of Yoga Nidra to reduce risk factors, prevent diseases of mental disorders & promote healthy lifestyle. MATERIAL & METHODS:  Good mental health can improve life quality whereas poor mental health can worsen it. Manas is called ‘Ubhayatmaka’ (sensory & motor functions) & hence considered as superior faculty because it controls & coordinates all other faculties connecting them with the soul. It includes Origin, Definitions, Stages, Procedure, Mechanism & impact of Yoga Nidra on mental health. DISCUSSION: Yoga Nidra's ultimate goal is to fight stressful influences while also addressing imbalances associated with poor stress management.  It's not just a method of dealing with stress; it's also a way to transform & positively manage stress as stepping stone to better awareness, efficiency & success in life. CONCLUSION: Yoga Nidra is powerful technique to induce complete physical, mental & emotional relaxations. Yoga Nidra is more efficient and effective kind of rest & rejuvenation for mind & body than conventional sleep.
