93 years old, and so full of health and life, and joy!

Joy makes for a long, happy life. If you’re lucky, and grateful, and active, and practice constantly.

The Rituals of Kumar Pallana

from PRO not yet rated

Plate Spinner, Acrobat, Yoga Instructor…Movie Star.

Granted, there might be a few things that he can’t do, but this much is certain: Kumar Pallana can do an awful lot of things, and he’s really, really cool. The guy can juggle, spin plates and do a handstand on a chair that’s balanced on some bottles. He knows a bunch of yoga moves and he’s always showing up in Wes Anderson movies. Plus he makes a mean cup of chai, counts beads and meditates. “Without the concentration, you cannot do nothing,” he says. “My soul is my guru; my experience is my guru.”
