Today was the monthly Ardra abhishekam and a number of devotees attended the puja from different places. Afterwards a group met Bodhinatha. Mr and Mrs. Chellappa (far left in photo) are from England, originally from Sri Lanka. His brother is Chandran Wigneswaran of Sydney, whose family organized Bodhinatha's visit there in February.
Prakash Babu, president of Peoria, Illinois temple and his wife came too. Prakash operated the "cherry picker" bucket that lifted Bodhinatha up to the top of the temple tower during the kumbhabhishekam in 2005.
And finally several from Detroit, Michigan. They recalled Bodhinatha attending the Ganesha Temple kumbhabhishekam in Phoenix Arizona because their sister lives there.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)
All experiences are good experiences, necessary to get us here.

The greatest challenge facing youth today is the lack of relating to the devotional side of Hinduism. Daily practice, daily vigil, moves us forward spiritually.
