On this sacred day of Guru Purnima, the full moon of the divine teacher, the dispeller of darkness, I would like to thank my father, Inti Cesar Malasquez. He carried me on his back through the Brazilian Amazon and up to Machupichu. He took our family across Europe and into India by land in the early 1970's to settle in Varanasi. He took me along with him into the sweat lodge and the way of the Red Road in the US before I was 12 and into plant medicine ceremony in the Amazon and Lake Titicaca when I was 15. He teaches me about resilience and discipline and following the way of spirit and music. I love you Papai, thanks for giving me so much light that helps me dispel the darkness every day. May you live long and be happy, prosperous and healthy. I love you and thank you for Lord Shiva.
Om Namah Shivaya!
