Bodhinatha’s Mission to Arizona
Bodhinatha left yesterday morning for Arizona with Sadhaka Dandapani.
And this morning Paramacharya Palaniswami and Senthilnathaswami left for their trip to California and New York.
All the monks gathered to see him off.

Arrival at Chellappa’s home
What Happened Today at the Monastery?
At home there was Pada puja for Gurudeva early this morning. A magical synchronicity: pada puja for Bodhinatha in Arizona on the same day.

Final approach to Johannesburg’s Tambo Airport after leaving Durban. You can see that Johanessburg and Pretoria are located on a vast plain.
To our surprise a little bit of Hawaii greeted us as we made our way through the airport terminal!
On the road to Randburg for the evening’s event. A familiar sight to our travelling Satguru.
A coconut camphor arati greets Bodhinatha at the door of Pramlin Naidu’s home.
A small group that has been studying Dancing with Siva under Pramlin’s direction has gathered for Bodhinatha’s darshan.
They are focused on the deities and scripture of our Parampara.
Bhajan was conducted first to build up a nice spiritual vibration.
After the bhajan the children get a chance to participate by answering questions from Dancing with Siva as Bodhinatha listens.
Pramlin Naidu and his wife, our gracious hosts for the evening.
Next morning we see this mural at the airport departure terminal. Bodhinatha agrees with the statement!
