B.K.S Iyengar – Dec 14th 1918 – August 20th 2014.
Farewell to the lion from Pune, B.K.S Iyengar, who transmitted the wisdom of yoga for so many years with the most sincere devotion.
I am so lucky to have been your disciple, you influenced my life and the life of my students.
The flame of yoga is shining and will continue to shine.

The Guru is Brahma (The God of Creation)
The Guru is Vishnu (The God of Sustenance)
The Guru is Shiva (The God of Annihilation)
My Salutation to such a Guru, who is verily the Supreme God
With gratitude and love,
Om Shantih, Shantih, Shantih.
