Mysuru has its own music and yoga traditions: MP Yaduveer

June 24, 2024

Mysore/Mysuru: Mysuru-Kodagu MP Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar said that while the erstwhile Mysore ruler Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar popularised 108 yogasanas, Mysuru Yoga Guru Tirumalai Krishnamacharya propagated yoga throughout the country.

He was speaking after releasing journalist Ithichanda Ramesh Uthappa’s work ‘Yoga Sangeetha, Mysuru Parampare’ at a programme organised by Publisher Oduga Prakashana in association with Mysore Cultural Association and Bharati Yogadhama, at Vijayagiri,  Uttanahalli, in city outskirts on Saturday.

Pointing out that Mysuru has its own tradition of music and yoga, Yaduveer said that Yoga Guru Tirumalai Krishnamacharya introduced more than 3,000 yoga asanas to the people.

Stressing that as Indians, we  need to sustain our ‘Guru Parampare,’ he said that the book contains valuable content on yogic music and everyone should read this book to have a better understanding on the subject.

Bharatiya Yogadhama Founder Dr. K.L. Shankaranarayana Jois, in his address, said that upon seeing yoga performances in foreign soil, one will have doubt whether yoga is indeed Indian in nature. As such, it is important not to transform yoga into any other form and to retain it as inherited by us from our ancestors. The younger generation has an enormous responsibility in this regard, he added.

Yoga Guru P.N. Ganesh Kumar and yoga expert and Ayurveda practitioner Dr. A.S. Chandrashekar were conferred with  ‘The Star of Yoga’ Award, while yoga exponents H. Kushi, Amulya and R. Ankita were conferred with ‘The Rising Star of Yoga’ Award on the occasion.

Former MUDA Chairman and Congress leader H.V. Rajeev,  author Ramesh Uthappa, artist Ravindra Hegde, Mysore Cultural Association President A.P. Nagesh, Oduga Prakashana’s Prakash Chikkapalya and others were present.
