Every composition had an occasion behind it, some with intention and some at the request of his disciples. One such literary work is Yogäïjalisäram, which Krishnamacharya composed on the lines of the famous poem, “Bhaja Govindam” of Ädi Çaìkaräcärya, in a meter easy for recitation and memorisation.
Like “Bhaja Govindam”, this composition aims at providing teaching for the welfare of humanity at large, with special focus on Yoga and its importance. The composition, in essence (säram) praises (aïjali) Yoga for its contribution in providing physical and mental health and exposes the belief system of the author. It will be evident that his devotion to Lord Näräyaëa along with His consort, Goddess Lakñmé forms a major part of this composition, which according to him is both the means and end of Yoga.
Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in collaboration with Swathi Soft Solutions takes great pride in bringing out this revised edition of T Krishnamacharya's Yogäïjalisäram, based on the original translation of TKV Desikachar. At appropriate junctures, certain additional comments, based on studies with TKV Desikachar, have beeninserted to clarify to the reader certain points of significance made by the author of the text.
