When, half a century ago, he left India and came to Europe America, Iyengar faced the audience who were looking at what he was doing with amazed eyes, experiencing body asanas as some kind of exotic from the East. At that time, the search for yoga was a subject of ridicule even in India itself. If he, according to his own statements, would have become a sadu, a pious man who walks along the paths of India with a begging dish in his hand, would encounter less humiliation. However, he continued his path to the awareness by writing down the yogic cartography of our being. Today there are millions of followers. His seventy-year-old path that brought traditional yoga to perfection, has become the path of many who have realized that freedom and happiness are not sought in a distant land, but in ourselves.
