Happy Thai Pongal!

Bodhinatha gives gifts to the silpis after the Thai Pongal puja at Iraivan this morning.

We all enjoy gathering around in the morning as the sun rises behind us. It is a pleasant, peaceful time. This festival is in thanks to nature for bountiful harvests and we feel a sense of harmony as we go through the simple ancient rites of boiling a pot of rice, then arati and worship of the sun.

The rice pot boils over! Enjoy the slideshow below of our festivities.
