Evening of Healing

October 24, 2012

From KHYF on Wednesday Oct 24th, 2012


Dear Friends

The Krishnamacharya Healing & Yoga Foundation (KHYF) wishes to further inform you that since 15th October 2012 the KHYF is owned by Mr. TKV Desikachar and Mrs. Menaka Desikachar. Mrs. Menaka Desikachar will function as the Non-Executive Chief of the Foundation and will be assisted by myself, Ms. Anupama Das, as Director-in-Charge.

The Foundation is extremely remorseful about the issues that have surfaced recently and is taking serious measures to ensure that these issues are addressed and procedures are in place to prevent any such situation occurring in the future.

As her first act of responsibility, Mrs. Menaka Desikachar has proposed to hold an Evening of Healing where healing chants will be offered to everyone effected directly or indirectly by the current turbulent situation. The Evening of Healing will happen on November 6th 2012 between 5:30pm and 6:30pm India time at the Main Hall of the Krishnamacharya Healing and Yoga Foundation.

The address of the venue is
Krishnamacharya Healing & Yoga Foundation
No.6,Old No.5. Stone Link Avenue, RA Puram,
Chennai 600028, INDIA

Mr. TKV Desikachar and Mrs. Menaka Desikachar will be leading the chants and will be accompanied by other senior teachers of the tradition. This event is open to all and we invite everyone to participate with an open heart. If you are not in India, we invite you to join us in this evening by creating your own altar wherever you may be and offering healing chants from Vedic Tradition or any other tradition that is yours. A simple silence held during this time is another way you may choose to link with the intention of the chanting evening.

We will keep you informed over the next weeks as the KHYF makes further adjustments ensuring that it continues to fulfill its objectives of transmitting the holistic teachings of Professor T Krishnamacharya worldwide.

    I welcome KYM’s first step of removing Kausthub from KYM and welcome this second step taken by Mr.Desikachar and his wife in offering healing by Organizing a formal healing session at the premises of KHYF and inviting everyone for the same .I will join the same from my own prayer altar at the same time and do my own chanting .In fact I daily do Spiritual Chants and Meditations and right from the time I came to know of this incident ,I have started sending my healing energies to all the affected parties . The onus is on Mrs & Mr Desikachar and all the senior students of Krishnamacharya to address this issue seriously and not just cover it up using some technical and legal loopholes . This is a test for Mr.Desikachar as this incident happened in his Institute and the Offender happens to be his own son .All the Yoga that he has learnt from his father Sri Krishnamacharya will be put to severe test now as to how he handles this issue . I have nothing to gain in this issue personally as I am never been part of KYM ,KHYF nor I am connected with the affected women even remotely . Sri Krishnamacharya is my highest inspirtaion for Yoga and I got lot of benefit through reading Sri Desikachar’s book “Heart of Yoga” and I still continue to read it and derive inspirtaion from the same .So I leave it to Sri Desikachar and his wife as to how they are going to resolve this issue .I know it is a very tough phase they are going through and no parent should go through the same . I will continue to strengthen them also through my daily prayers and hope this espiode helps everyone introspect , clear the negativity ,punish the guilty( the active as well as the passive ones ) ,offer geniune support to the affected people put in more better systems in the Organization that helps pervent such incidents in future .
    Om Peace Peace Peace

    Kausthub must re-read his own article and take advice from some one who is capable of healing him and follow that person’s advice with full seriousness .BTW this article is also useful for everyone to understand how healing works in the Yoga tradition and it is an interesting article .

    What is Menaka’s title: “non-executive chief”? I’m not being cute here, I really don’t know what this means, or what the title is meant to suggest. It all sounds as though the leadership is temporary and awaiting KD’s return I am very concerned about reports elsewhere in this blog that Ms. Das is reporting daily to Kausthub. I’m even more concerned about the prospect of the family creating a “healing narrative” that allows Kausthub to re-emerge as a self-described “ruby in shit”(temporarily compromised).

    Non-executive implies that there is also executive wing of the organization. Non-executive posts are normally filled by people from outside the organization and are not an employee. The role and responsibilities of this person are usually advisory in nature and carry no real power. Google Non-executive director or chief and you will find a bunch of references.

  5. ‘The Foundation is extremely remorseful about the issues that have surfaced recently and is taking serious measures to ensure that these issues are addressed and procedures are in place to prevent any such situation occurring in the future’.

  6. Another nasty joke. Mrs & Mr Desikachar have chanted many times in the past to silence many people – women and men – who went to them with serious complaints about their son, sincerely seeking some solution. All they got was some heart-rending chants from remorseful and guilty parents and maybe some almonds and papaya as compensation! Let them just chant for their son and not make a joke out of the situation that they have wholeheartedly contributed to all these years. And why drag poor Desikachar’s name into all this when EVERYBODY KNOWS he has lost his memory and not capable of understanding anything that is happening around him now? Is there no limit to the deceit and manipulation?? Every piece of communication is so carefully and elusively crafted… master manipulator in action!

    I too would like to know specifically what issues are making them remorseful. Is their errant son, or the poor women who have suffered. I would like to know what are there serious measures that they are going to take. Are these aimed at their son or to the recipients of their sons behaviour. Are they advising Kausthub to be mature and to go back to Austria and face the charges? Or are they going to wait until this becomes more serious? How are they going to prevent this happening again? Do they have a chant for that too!
