What Happened Today at the Monastery?
All is quiescent at the Aadheenam. The external intensity of traveling and visitors went on the “in-breath” … Even the wind stopped today… no news from home… monks busy as bees, inside the hive… We bring you more wonderful picture from the innersearch below.
Bodhinatha’s next trip is to Singapore and Malaysia where he will give a second keynote (powerpoint) presentation on our What is Hinduism? book. Go to his travel page to download flyers about these free seminars.
END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Dasami Tithi, Sun One, Saturday, March 1st.
Innersearch Asian Odyssey 2008 Retrospective
We continue our retrospective of the 2008 Asian Odyssey. Here we are, still in Cambodia, on the 15th of January (afternoon).
In order to visit the temples we need to get ourselves a 3-day pass. This is the most efficient line in all of Asia. Within a matter of 10 minutes our entire group of 95 have been photographed individually and passes printed.
Back on the bus for our first temple visit.
Giles and his son Oisin Thompson from Kansas. Young Oisin was on that historic 2001 Europe Innersearch with Gurudeva.

Some amount of reconstruction work is taking place on these temples.
