Ravindraraj and Kumaridevi were the special guests at the homa today for the chudakarana of their little girl, Bhuma.
Kumaridevi is second generation American Hindu, having been raised with Gurudeva’s teachings since she was a little girl. She also speaks Tamil fluently. Ravindraraj works in a microchip design company and is a fine photographer as well.
So, this makes Bhuma, the little girl a third generation American Hindu.
Bodhinatha blesses Bhuma by smearing sandal paste on her shaved head. Bhuma was very content and intrigued with the whole ceremony.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)

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.
