News From Bodhinatha

Here is Bodhinatha at Kailas Ashram. He and Palaniswami and Sadhaka Dandapani are on their way home with stop overs in Singapore and Taipei.

Today’s Pilgrims and Visitors

Meanwhile the weather has cleared at the Aadneenam and another spectacular day brought visitors and pilgrims from all parts India and the Mainland. The Kadavul Temple was filled with worshippers this morning and there was a sweet, peaceful, and quiescent energy permeating the entire temple.



All were taken for a tour of the Iraivan Temple. Several families were from Chennai, Andra Pradesh and Bangalore, as well as Nepal and even Mongolia. A bright and happy group with lots of questions.
