Guru Purnima

Pattabhi Jois was born on the full moon of July in 1915, so the full moon yesterday marked his birthday, and what a day for a man who came to be known Guruji to be born.  The full moon in July is also a festival day, Guru Purnima, and to quote Tim Miller's blog, Tuesdays with Timji, Guru Purnima is a day when we express our love, gratitude, and devotion to our Guru, and remember the significant contribution that he/she has made to our lives and the lives of many others. It is also traditionally a time for us to reflect on the past year and to recommit ourselves to the spiritual path taught by our Guru.  Tim is someone I have not yet been fortunate enough to meet, but I highly recommend his blog if you have the time/opportunity to read it.  So that being said, honour your guru, celebrate the full moon, and well, now that the moonday is over, listen to Guruji: do your practice and all is coming.
