|Me and Guruji at his birthday celebration on my first trip to India|
अज्ञानतिमिरान्धस्य ज्ञानाञ्जनशलाकया ।
चक्षुरुन्मीलितं येन तस्मै श्रीगुरवे नमः ॥
ajñānatimirāndhasya jñānāñjanaśalākayā |
cakṣurunmīlitaṁ yena tasmai śrīgurave namaḥ ||
I offer my respectful obeisances unto my spiritual master, who has opened my eyes, which were blinded by the darkness of ignorance, with the torchlight of knowledge.
In honor of Guruji, here is a sweet video by Barry Silver of Ashtanga Yoyogi...

And gratitude to my teacher R. Sharath Jois. Ashtanga yoga changed my life.
