Monday’s full moon is Guru Purnima and the birthday of Pattabhi Jois. Eddie Stern has a celebration planned — with a promised surprise — and Tim Miller also has said he’ll be putting something together.

We’ll begin our celebration now, with a video remembrance of one version of the infamous neti story. Enjoy.

  1. I am unfamiliar with Guru Purnima – celebrating Guru’s who are either living and passed away. I am not familiar with celebrating the birthday of someone who has passed on either. Are there any references that I could read about the tradition?
