Bodhinatha Comes Home to Bless the Arch

Bodhinatha arrived home this afternoon. We had prepared a special surprise for him: the blessing of the newly installed archway.

Jai Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswamiki Jai!

The arati for the arriving holy man is held at the new entrance.

Lighting the lamp

Breaking the coconut.

Bodhinatha offers a shower of flowers and then takes the first step through the archway.

The traditional gift giving to the silpis.

Then everyone passes through, throwing a handful of flowers up to the archway.

It’s good to have our two brothers, Shanmuganathswami and Siddhinathaswami home too!
