Dr. Pallav Kolli and his wife Garani Nataraja from California. Garani is the daughter of Ravi Nadaraja.
We have known Garani since she was a little baby in her father’s arms when Gurudeva visited his home in the early years (1980’s) after Ravi first came to America from Sri Lanka. Ravi did a brief pada puja to Gurudeva at the door of his humble home and his wife Gowri served dinner to Gurudeva and Sivakatirswami. During the meal, Garani was crawling contentedly all over father’s shoulders and back. Ravi paid no attention and kept up the conversation as if his daughter were just part of him. Swami remembers thinking “How patient this father is!”
Ravi and Gowri subsequently built very successful careers and family. Their daughters grew up and are now on their own. Now Garani is touching base with the Parampara.
Gowri and her husband Pallav are both doctors just starting their careers.
Arumugaswami shared with them some of our publishing initiatives.
Don't let down. Success comes with consistency of conduct. Improve and control our mind and behavior standards twenty-four hours a day. Monistic Theism, our tradition, is a dual approach. Worshiping God on the outside; claiming and realizing God on the inside. Going deep within to find That which does not change. The path of Saivism: "Bhakti-raja-siddha yoga leading to oneness."
