On Thursday, October 19th, 2017, legendary Pop artist icon Peter Max turns 80! Peter, who was given the Sanskrit name “Atman” (divine soul) by Swami Satchidananda, is Integral Yoga’s first founding member. Max hosted Swami Satchidananda’s first visit to the USA and helped to give birth to America’s first Integral Yoga Institute established in New York City in 1966. You can read Max’s retelling of the story here.
In honor of Peter Max’s 80th birthday, his longtime friend and colleague—also an Integral Yoga founding member—Victor Arjuna Zurbel has produced a stunning short film to commemorate the occasion and Max’s humanitarian contributions. Enjoy the film about the incredible Peter Atman Max here.
