About & Pics
Yogī T Krishnamacharya, was an accomplished Sanskrit scholar and poet. He composed numerous poems, hymns and commentaries in Sanskrit. He had the background of extensive studies in diverse areas of Vedic traditions and philosophy. He had unshakeable faith in his family’s tutelary deity, Lord Hayagrīva, the God of Knowledge, and the grace of the divine endowed him with the ability to write and compose spontaneously in Kannada, Telugu and Sanskrit with great erudition.
Every composition had an occasion behind it, some with intention and some at the request of his disciples. One such literary work is Yogāñjalisāram, which Krishnamacharya composed on the lines of the famous poem, “Bhaja Govindam” of Ādi Śaṅkarācārya, 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 (sāram) praises (añjali) 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 Nārāyaṇa along with His consort, Goddess Lakṣmī forms a major part of this composition, which according to him is both the means and end of Yoga.
