Old video: Sharath performs Prasarita Padottanasana 'subroutine' for his Grandfather

Looks like this is from an old TV show, wonder if there's any more on the way.

  1. Have this tape somewhere, think it's from an Australian public access show ... P. Jois conducted young (skinny = hair) Sharath thru entire primary series.

  2. Yes, isn't it great., must be able to get our hands on the rest of it somehow.

    Jason, can you fish it out and find out what they've called it, what the channel was and what year, be nice to get hold of a tape and convert it to dvd.

  3. Think this video is responsible for a huge spike visits to my blog, i'd linked to it on FB and i think it got picked up and shared by a few people. I used to average around 350 page visits a day, that's dropped to around 250-280 with all the Vinyasa krama stuff I've been posting. Yesterday it jumped to 479, never hit 400 before (398 was the highest and three hundred of those was probably M. )
    Oh I did put up the mexican soap opera post yesterday too but it was probably Sharath.

    Don't tend to keep up on the analytics that much but noticed my blog counter clicking over at quite a whack yesterday.

  5. I'm almost certain that this was filmed in Sydney back in the 90's by a guy called Robert Mac - it wasn't for a tv show though. Robert is on Facebook....

  6. It is from when they were in Australia. I forget what year but it was filmed by a student of Eileen Halls called Robert Mac. I'm not sure if it is still available. Contact Eileen and she will be able to tell you.

from Kalama sutra, translation from the Pali by Bhikkhu Bodhi This blog included. "So, as I said, Kalamas: 'Don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, "This contemplative is our teacher." When you know for yourselves that, "These qualities are unskillful; these qualities are blameworthy; these qualities are criticized by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to harm & to suffering" — then you should abandon them.' Thus was it said. And in reference to this was it said.

"Now, Kalamas, don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, 'This contemplative is our teacher.' When you know for yourselves that, 'These qualities are skillful; these qualities are blameless; these qualities are praised by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to welfare & to happiness' — then you should enter & remain in them. Buddha - Kalama Sutta
