Once every now and that we have a big photo shoot of all the monks. Six of the silpis are returning to India in 30 days and Palaniswami is preparing souvenir photo albums for each one as a gift in appreciation for all the work they have done on the temple. Our goal this morning at 7 AM was to assemble all the monks, have good light, no rain and take a photo of each silpi with Bodhinatha and all the monks. The hardest part is getting everyone together at the same place at the same time!
Ahh there we are!
The blessing of our brotherhood is yet another great gift of our Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami. How fortunate we are to be here, together and to have this opportunity to set aside any personal life and serve the Kailasa Paramapara as we whittle down our prarabdha karmas to virtual zero, hopefully letting us fly free in moksha.
All photos in this section can be seen bigger. Just click on any photo!
And we took the opportunity to take a fresh photo of the Saiva Swami Sangam.

The mind doesn't move; awareness moves. We have control. Sitting still, restraining the mind, nirodha of the vrittis, is what's changing subconscious from the inside out. Being spurred on by the guru, strive for improvement, seeing progress. Look inside, find happiness and then share it. When not in meditation work to refine every attribute of your nature. Be in the world and be fearless. Face what you need to do and do it well.
