“Awareness does not just come, you have to create awareness.”
– Abhijata Iyengar
Three years ago Abhijata taught her first National Convention in Florida.
Abhi, as she is affectionately known, is a daughter of the modern age. She practiced daily under the all encompassing eyes of her grandfather. There were days, she recounts, when she felt stiff, reticent, or weary. Guruji always asked for her best, untiring effort and found ways to bring the sparkle into her practice. They would often laugh, his eyes bright and shiny with appreciation of her eagerness, sincerity and humbleness.
Here is an excerpt from one of Abhi’s presentations in Spain:
Guruji’s most significant contribution is that he made yoga available to all of us. Through asana, Guruji opened what was once considered a very mystical subject to the common man. Through asana, Guruji made it possible for you and me to connect to yoga.
Man’s thinking process is abstract and he views philosophy as abstract too. Asana is concrete. Guruji has made it possible for us to become aware of our own thinking pattern through the asana. Asana becomes an instrumental force to look into ourselves. Remember, Guruji said, “There can be no transformation without the inner urge.”
So, dear friends, you have to open your door to let knowledge in.. you have to open the door to let new experience come in.. you have to open the door, to be a student of yoga, to allow yoga to become a part of you.
