“That of course it the very nature of healing - that anything you are holding onto that is less pure than your highet intentions will come to your attention, and as long as you stay conscious, you will move through it. I knew that, but just knowing didn't help.”
Bob Frissell

Krishnamacharya’s Final Act

n

“I was with him when he released his final breath. I’m told people usually gasp at the end, but my father’s chest only rose and fell, rose once more and then subsided. That was all there was. He passed easily from life. When we moved him from the bed, we found under his pillow bank notes worth five thousand rupees. No one had known the money was there, and it was precisely the amount needed to cover the funeral expenses. Even indeath, my father refused to be under obligation to anyone. It was Krishnamacharya’s final act of independence.”
