Excerpts from “Guruji”
Guruji : The portrait of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Through the Eyes of Ricky Heiman
Can you think of a favorite story about Guruji?
Well I don’t know if I can use the language, and I don’t know if I’ll quote it properly, but when he was here this last trip, visitors would come to the house sometimes in the afternoon and we’d be hanging around talking, just chatting. I remember one young lady came in and started talking about what was wrong with the world: the world was this and they are killing that… Guruji just very casually said to her, “you let God take care of the world, you take care of your anus.” That was brilliant to me, it was brilliant. I don’t know if you’ll be able to quote that, but maybe you could say “God takes care of the world, you take care of your mula bandha.” I love that.
