Senthilnathaswami’s father Ralph Whitten and step mother Stevanne Auerbach are visiting from Berkeley, California. Steveanne sent some photos she took. Here is a good shot of the inside of our Minimela information center.

What a great joy to see the Swami with his father. As a Tamil saying goes ‘children know their parents even before they come to know God’ hence such profound influence our parents have on us. I feel indebted to the Swami and his father as well. Thanks for sharing!
