We just got the word about the death of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois at the age of 94. Jois founded Ashtanga yoga, and was a major force in bringing yoga to the West. His teacher, Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya transmitted an ancient lineage of yoga teachings through Jois.
This is no doubt a sad day for Guruji’s many devoted students throughout the world. Here is the smallest sampling of his vast, loving widom:
“Do your practice and all is coming.”
“If we practice the science of yoga, which is useful to the entire human community and which yields happiness both here and hereafter – if we practice it without fail, we will then attain physical, mental, and spiritual happiness, and our minds will flood towards the Self.”
Have you ever studied Ashtanga yoga?
