San Diego Devotees Prepare for Bodhinatha's Arrival

In our retrospective on Bodhinatha’s trip to California, We catch up with Bodhinatha as he moves to Southern California. The devotees had a small gathering than the one in Palo Alto, but being with the Satguru is always a big event, and the San Diego devotees are here preparing the shrine you see above. Here they are:

Diksha Katir and Kumaran Ratnam.

Sujatha Sonti and Gunamaya. Sujatha lives in Carlsbad and is a long time friend of Sheela Rahavendran.

Prasanna Kodapati and Greg Rogers. They met recently at a luncheon in Los Angeles with Palaniswami and Senthilnathaswami.

Gunamaya and Nalini Kodapati.

Shakti Mahadevan joins the welcoming team.

Prasanna and Greg meeting Lavana Sivam. Lavana met Gurudeva before Prasanna was born and has lots to share.

Radha Trivedi, her son Shailesh, and Diksha.

Dasan and Ravi Rahavendran going over some final details for the padapuja.

I think we are ready!

Sheela Auntie and her sister, Sujatha and Gunamaya. We are ready too!

Sheela Rahavendran and her Auntie Sheela sharing a nice moment before Satguru arrives.

Uncle Kumaran and Annie Ruiz, listening attentively to the wisdom he shares.

Dasan and Nalini. Nalini did not know at this point that she was going to be called on to sing for Bodhinatha. She sang beautifully and all who attended clapped, including Bodhinatha. It was such a sweet surprise for all!

Annie made a comment that she really appreciated Uncle Kumaran, but now she appreciates him even more. Must have been a good talk full of wisdom from an elder.

Shailesh listening to his mother. Siva’s devotees love nothing more than being with others who adore Siva. !
