Lately I have been reading a lot about the “Lion of Pune”, or the “Eyebrows of Yoga”, namely B.K.S. Iyengar.
|Patanjali in the Cave Temple|
Recently, I found out that in 2004 a temple dedicated to Patanjali (the fore-father of yoga) was inaugurated by BKS in the town of his birh-place, Bellur, South India.
Even though the article was written before the opening of the temple, it was already portrayed to be the future place of Pilgrim for all of his students.
“Bellur is soon to become a place of pilgrimage for all Iyengar Yoga students, because the place is of immense importance to our beloved Guruji. Its tranquil and serene environment, enchanted with the grace of Lord Patanjali and his divine philosophy of Yoga, provides one of the most perfect spiritual settings for Yoga Sadhana (ardent practice of Yoga).”
Perhaps the most interesting thing is that in this temple they are to praise and sing the 108 names of Patanjali. I was going to write just a few and give you a link, but the more I got into looking at them the more interesting it got.
I decided to put them all here at the risk of having a very long blogpost because I think them worth-it.
