Iyengar Donates to Mysore Zoo

B.K.S. Iyengar, the founder of Iyengar Yoga, became the biggest individual donor to the Mysore zoo this week when he gave Rs 20 lakh (approximately 41,000 USD) in honor of his late wife, Ramamani Sunderaj Iyengar. According to India Today, this donation follows a donation of a little more than a lukh (about 2,000 USD) he gave in late December in celebration of his 90th birthday.

Are you surprised that Mr. Iyengar has a soft spot for animals?
