Guru Purnima 

Today is the day of the guruteacherinnerlight. After meditation at the ashram, we chanted the Guru Stotram in its entirety, bathed in the upstate NY sunlight as the cow dung fire glowed off Ganesha's image.

Last year, I chanted with a handful of Sanskrit students that same chant (though only eight verses), in honor of Guruji on his birthday. I wish I was there, this year. Even though I have so much beauty and love here, too.

Our beloved Guruji turns ninety this year, and hundreds are in Mysore to honor and love him. Wish I was there, too. Sending so much love and gratitude that way.
