― Ken Wilber

The 24 Gurus Of Dattatray.

Dattaray, one of the most venerated and ancient sages of India, is said to have had all of creation as his guru. Every encounter was for him a teaching, a message of wisdom. Watch these short videos illustrating how water, mountain, sea, air, and many more, were his teachers. This is project my my dear friend Sundaram, in collaboration with many fellow seekers. Follow his channel Yog Tales to see when new episodes come up.
