This fifth volume of Astadala Yogamala contains a great treasure house of material compiled from interviews taken with Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar. Like an explorer, who enters a dark cave and penetrates its depth with a beam of light, the torchlight of each interview illumines a section of the cave revealing the Gem of Wisdom, lying in the depth of the ardent, unceasing and devoted sadhana of Sh. B.K.S. Iyengar.

About the author (2005)

B.K.S. Iyengar was born in India in 1918 and has been teaching yoga since of the age of 17. He has been one of the world's leading teachers of yoga for over 70 years and is internationally recognized as a leading authority of hatha yoga. His own style of teaching, "Iyengar Yoga", is followed by certified teachers across the world. Iyengar was the first person to teach yoga to large groups of students; he lays great emphasis on precision and alignment, a style that is faithfully followed by his students. He is also the only person to teach the highest aspects of yoga - Atma Darshan - through asanas. Through his work, Iyengar has established the relevance of yoga to the treatment and cure of many illnesses, and has received a Doctorate from the United Nations Charter for Peace. At the age of 90, Iyengar still practices and teaches yoga, and also travels the world teaching and lecturing.
