Honoring an Unforgettable Swami Gitananda
For that reason, his teachings we accessible to students around the world who were attracted to his clear, rational, scientific expositions of ancient philosophical and spiritual concepts. Dr Gitananda was a practical man to the core and the technology of yoga which he transmitted to his students has proven an effective method of attaining perfect health, well being, personality and intellectual development.
Known for his sense of humor, Swami would often joke, “I am not here to make money or gain your votes. Therefore, I do not have to please you. My joy is to help you grow. And to grow, you have got to shed all this false conditioning which binds you back.” His approach to living was entirely positive. “Iti, iti. God is This. God is that. Everything is God,” he would say.
On behalf of all our students, past, present and future, David and the Pyramid Yoga family extend their sincere gratitude and blessings to the late Swami Gitananda and his family and friends at Ananda Ashram in Pondicherry, India. We continue to honor your teachings, sharing them with respect, humility, love, but most importantly – a healthy sense of humor.
