The world has lost a great man.
BKS Iyengar passed away Wednesday morning at the age of 95.

Mr. Iyengar’s life and his teachings brought light to so many.

Through his work, he shines as a true example of selfless service, love and devotion.

A blessing:
As we seek to embody the qualities that BKS Iyengar so lovingly demonstrated.
May his life inspire us to live with honesty and integrity.
May we follow his example of alleviating suffering wherever possible.
May we cultivate attitudes of friendliness, compassion and joy.
May we strive toward a centered mind — in both pleasure and pain.
May we follow his example of hard work, self-study, and letting go of the fruits of our actions.
