Introduction

For many years, students of Krishnamacharya, and others who owe him a lot of gratitude, have been requesting that an account of his life and teaching be made available for the benefit of everyone. I have been hesitating to do this, not only because much of his past is not documented, but also because of his reluctance to talk about himself.

This year, when an opportunity arose to address the annual congress of the Union European Des Federations Nationals de Yoga, I thought it was time to take the plunge. I gave three presentations covering the life of Krishnamacharya. The first part of this book is the edited version of these lectures.

Eminent masters of Yoga who have not been fortunate enough to study the classic of Yoga, the Yogasutra, with Krishnamacharya, have been requesting a version of my studies with him, on the basis that I have had the benefit of staying and studying with him for more than twenty years. Each time I considered this venture. I pulled back, because of the magnitude of the project as well as the fact that his teaching, orally transmitted in various languages, was very difficult to put in writing in English.

A thought came to me this year that perhaps the essence of his latest thinking (that the Yoga of Patanjali is the only means to develop Bhakti, or devotion) could be set down. Because of my regular exposure to his teaching and his willing agreement to respond immediately to any questions, it has been possible to bring out the present views of Krishnamacharya. These are presented in the second part of the book.

In the preparation of both these parts, my friend from Canada, Michael Smith, has been of great help, and I offer my gratitude to him.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
