The public tour today seemed to keep growing! An inwardly quiet group of extraordinary souls on a radiant day.
Shanti and Myruli are from Albuquerque, New Mexico. They really enjoyed the tour today even though it was one of the hottest days of the year. We kept taking refuge from one beautiful tree to the next.
Purna and Gopa Patnaik from Enunitas, California enjoyed the carving demonstration. Kandan, our temple silpi had just finished his extraordinary craft.
Mohan and Shirkala Savkoor with their daughter, Swapna and Son, Chetan. They have been in touch with the monks for many years having attended pujas at the Palaniswami Temple in San Francisco 30 years ago. They are from San Jose, Calif. I asked Mohan how he was doing on the long trek with his cane and he replied “I will do anything happily for the grace of God”!
