    1. Dear Praxy and Ranjit

      Thank you for your wishes.

      I was really blessed by God on my Birthday as you wished .A lady from our hymn singing class went to Mount Kailash on pilgrimage.On my request she brought the statue of Saint Thirumoolar.She also brought a special garland for this saint. Following our hymn singing class on my birthday she wanted me to put this garland on the neck of the statue with the husband and wife trustees of the Ganesh Temple as it was my birthday.

      Saint Thirumoolar,Saint Pathanchali and six other saints learnt Yoga from Lord Shiva for the first time.In the introduction saint Thirumoolar says ” We were taught eight asanas,these will multiply and end up as countless”.According to the scriptures saint Thirumoolar had lived for more than three thousand years.

      What Saint Thirumoolar said I am witnessing now.The Asanas have become countless. Those who come for the classes love them and benefit immensely.

      If you click Iyengar’s student Zubin’s face book you can see me with him in his class in World Yoga Festival in Reading last July.In the 2019 invitation notice for next year’s Yoga Festival in Reading I am also in the photograph with him in the notice.

      I received your other Birthday Card as well.Thank you for that also.

      Kind regards.

      Sree and Maha.


      1. Dear Sree
        I am happy that you got the blessings of this saint and that you were honoured with placing the garland. That is wonderful. I shall read about this saint. Praxy

      May the Almighty God bless us to meet at the 2019 RU.I have put in my experience with Saint Thirumoolar in my reply to Praxy.

      If possible if we can get the hotel where we would be staying next year to provide Yoga mats I could think about getting a certified trainer in Yoga take one or one and a half hours class.I could consider paying for the trainer.

      Raje’s was not only Maha’s room mate when she was in U.K she was working near Maha is Ascot.

      Kind regards.

      Sree and Maha.

        For the first time in my life I attended a Yoga Class two wks ago, on a sunday morning, after a wonderful Sweat Lodge the evening before.
        I was invited to attend this special Sweat Lodge by a well known Indigenous Medicine Man and his wife , who live in close to my home . His wife has been a Yoga Instructor for many , many years .

    1. Thank you Satha and Selvi.We were at our niece’s [ Dr.Ravindran’s daughter in law’s ] place week end before last.I was thinking about both of you at that time.

      Sree and Maha.


    1. Dear Seelan and Jean

      On my Birthday my wish was to continue eating Maha’s cooking for some more decades.Will you join? As I used to do I will keep Ginger Beer only for the drinks.



      1. Sure, will join.
        Who will say no to our Kanahakka’s food?
        Ginger Beer will do – I will ignore the Ginger & drink the beer.
