Vikas and Shreya Ghelani visited Kauai for the first time from San Jose, California. They were eager to converse with Bodhinatha and had several good questions for him, like how to control thoughts from running wild, not worrying about future, etc.
Our Hawaiian sunny, hot days of spring/summer are just getting started. The ground has dried up and now it's easy to do abhishekam at the Narmada Lingam without getting our feet muddy and slipping. Shreya worships after bathing the lingam.
And then Vikas
Another hot day with temps in the high 80’s and a hazy layer of ‘vog’ floating over Kauai from the volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.
