Yesterday (17th in India) and today Bodhinatha and Palaniswami are in New Delhi at Golok Dham Ashram. Internet connectivity and time for logging in are not easily available.
They attended a big yajna, puja and abhishekam for the founder of this ancient Vaishnava sect, Nimbarka Bhagavan, who is believed to have lived 5,000 years ago. Today was a special anniversary for the Nimbarka Vaishnava sampradaya.
Today Bodhinatha will be on Aastha TV and tomorrow Palaniswami.
Home at Kauai Aadheenam we had a big tour day. Many bright and inspired visitors.

"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
