BKS Iyengar passed away early this morning, he had been unwell for several weeks and was admitted to hospital last week. He suffered Kidney failure and a heart attack. I pay respect to Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar and his loved ones.
In writing about him I am filled with joy, a light from within for all he achieved in sharing and spreading the teachings of yoga across the world. This is a phenominal feat of achievement which has touched, helped to improve and heal the lives of many.
I pay respect and gratitude to a man who lived and devoted his life to yoga. He taught love, passion, discipline, perseverance and belief – all by example. He lived his truth.
Rest in peace Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar.
Your light shines bright.
“One’s spiritual realization lies in none other than how one walks among and interacts with one’s fellow beings.” BKS Iyengar, Light on Life
