What Happened Today at the Monastery?

Bodhinatha and Yoginathaswami arrived home today after a long 36-hour travel from Singapore. Yoginathaswami took our new silpis and sthapati to the silpis house directly. We will feature them tomorrow.

Coming back to Kadavul temple is always a blissful moment after being away.
