Happy Birthday Guruji! I appreciate your wisdom, your knowledge, and the good you have done for me and many other practicing yogis.

I have not personally studied with Iyengar but have several of his books, my favorite being "The Tree of Yoga." I have studied with a handful of Senior Iyengar teachers and found my yoga home in Iyengar.

Yes, pretty much! I rarely buy a "dead tree book" anymore.

Great interview, Bob. I enjoyed Lucy's humor. This is a book I've been wanting to read. Actually been waiting for it to be available for the Kindle.

Lucy...we had some email correspondence a few months ago. Any news on when the book will be out for the Kindle?

I am enjoying the dialogue here. Are Brahmin and Beloved Lord two separate entities? Is Beloved Lord actually someone who is fully enlightened? So you know, I am a first-time Gita reader and have read through Chapter 8. Thank you for your participation here!

My favorite is the very end of the chapter...

"Practice yoga sincerely,
with singleminded devotion;
love me with perfect faith;
bring your whole self to me."

I guess, for me, I use it when I really mean it. I don't just use it haphazardly. When I "namaste" someone, I do it with divine intention and feeling. If I don't feel it, I don't say it.

When I use the word, Namaste, I am saying that I respect you as a creation of God, as part of the divine. Personally, I love the word/greeting. It is overly used in the American yoga community and as Bob said, has some kind of assumed spiritual intimacy. In Nepal, it is simply a respectful greeting that warms the heart.
