Personal picture showing T Krishnamacharya and BKS Iyengar sitting together……

Whilst living in Madras from 1979-1981 I was at an event in Chennai in June 1980 where BKS Iyengar was invited to give a Yoga lecture and Āsana demonstration in a tribute to his Guru T Krishnamacharya.

Krishnamacharya consented to attend as the guest of honour and I was able to take a number of personal photos during this event, including Mr Iyengar demonstrating Āsana.

This particular picture shows T Krishnamacharya and BKS Iyengar sitting together during the salutary addresses.

  1. Hi Paul,

    Can you tell me if the image above is copyrighted (of Iyengar and Krishnamacharya sitting together)? I was thinking of reproducing it on the web.

    Kind thanks,


    • I took a bunch of pix whilst there, its from that collection.
      Regarding your question of is it copyrighted.
      No none of the stuff on my site is copyright unless it is from an outside source which is itself holding a copyright on that particular content and then I mention it around its use.
      However although I don’t feel I have a right to claim ownership I do consider acknowledgement of where it came from very appropriate and a matter of Dharma in this age we live in and especially the instant grasping that surrounds the environment of virtual Kāma.
      For example on the cover page my various course teaching manuals for example I say:
      “Not © though acknowledgement of the source would be appropriate.”
