News from India
Bodhinatha writes from Delhi:
Mon, Feb 11th, we went to Shakti Mallick’s home for lunch. He runs Abinav Publications and will be printing What is Hinduism later this year.
In the afternoon, Palaniswami met with some other publishers.
In the evening we visited Karan Singh. He is 77 and going strong in his life of public service. Really loves Gurudeva. We attend his arati to Lord Siva in his up stairs shrine room. Had an excellent vibration.

Today’s Pilgrims and Visitors
Badrinath Kidambi was previously here with his boss a few weeks ago. He so enjoyed the peace and spirituality of the Aadheenam that today he brought his wife, Usha Jayanthi Vagnipuran, to celebrate their first wedding anniversary and receive the blessings of this temple.
They have been residing in Honolulu, but Badarinath’s work as a Radio Frequency Engineer for Sprint is now requiring them to move their home to Las Vegas, Nevada. Badarinath was reassured by friends that there was also a temple in Las Vegas.
