In favour of the view that the Yogarahasya was a product of Krishnamacharya s own (probably subconscious) mind is the likelihood, or lack of it, that the spirits of deceased persons exist in a form that enables them to communicate any kind of information (and particularly detailed, innovative information) to another person living hundreds of years after their demise though this is, of course, a common belief among people of mediumistic persuasion such as channellers.22 There are also teachings in the Yogarahasya that link specifically with Krishnamacharya s own life and times.
