Father Yod is a colorful and inspiring figure from the historic, honeycombed migration of yoga and Indian-inspired mysticism into the United States of America and the West. He was an early protégé of Yogi Bhajan, the founder of Kundalini Yoga; and during a pilgrimage to India, just after visiting his guru's teacher, Yod had a revelation on the Ganges River. At that moment, he threw his turban into the Ganges and the Source Family was born. In the early 1970's, Father Yod and the Source Family owned and operated a very successful vegetarian restaurant, The Source, in Hollywood. During its prime, their commune featured over 100 members; and the commune's mystical psychedelic band, Ya Ho Wa 13, self-published records and sold them at the restaurant. During the past several years, these recordings have increasingly garnered acclaim and appreciation amongst music critics, fans, and other conneseuirs of 60's and 70's psychedelia.

Ya Ho Wa 13 will be headlining a show at the Knitting Factory on April 8th, 2008, in New York City. Learn more about Yod and Ya Ho Wa 13 from an older post on Ya Ho Wa 13 at Souljerky.

For those of you who attended the sold out events in Los Angeles and San Francisco, you know how magical and downright epic these happenings were, but just to refresh your memory— the LA Weekly slideshow, our Flickr photoset, and the LA Weekly's cover story Father Yod Knew Best.
