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.
Sun One, Feb. 16, 2015Understanding keys to the mind and transformation. Kriya, the yoga of action, comprised of tapas, svadhyaya and Ishvara pranayama. Living in the soul nature; attenuating the kleshas. Detaching from the world. Giving up attractions and aversions, limitations, clinging to life, wanting to be finite and ignorant. Ignorance is thrown off when we stop looking outside. Warming up to the idea of being omnipresent and all knowing.
