Limerick: Once the Yogi of Himalaya or the Laughing Gas Yogi

Limerick: Once the Yogi of Himalaya or the laughing gas Yogi I Once the Yogi of Himalaya Preached laughing loud with Prânâyâma* They thought him immortal Put him on pedestal Now he’s the toast of lost Gondwana. II Once the same Yogi Himalaya Taught laughing during Prânâyâma* Lungs stuck to diaphragm Voice: phonocardiogram Now he’s part of iced Fujiyama. • Sanskrit for the art of breathing in yogic practices: • prânâ = (cosmic) energy; âyâma = vitality. © T.
