What Happened Today at the Monastery?
It was tour day at the Aadheenam we had about 100 visitors over both 9 and 11 am tours.
Otherwise, it’s quiet at home… and we bring you some good news from Sri Lanka.

Sri Subramuniya Kottam Vijayadasami Celebrations
Last November the Sri Subramuniya Kottam celebrated Navaratri and Vijayadasami for 10 days. The photos were taken on the last day of Vijayadasami. The Kottam children made the “kolu” where they beautifully decorated a stage with many images of God and Gods.
They performed the pujas and sang bhajans each evening. On the last day, known as Vijayadasami, the students enjoyed dancing and singing, and gave speeches on stage.
Some of you may be wondering about the timing of these photos — due to the raging civil war, the city of Jaffna has been essentially cut off from the rest of the country, resulting in several months’ delay in mail — and these photos — from reaching the USA.
