Bodhinatha is with the students in Texas, we suspect they are out of internet range at the moment. But we understand they are having a wonderful retreat.
At home we are having beautiful cool clear “winter days.” Oh! temperatures dropped to 55 last night! And some of us have to wear socks now it is so cold in the morning.
Sadhaka Rajanatha’s Bougainvillea Bonsai burst into bloom recently.
On the mission front the Pillaiyar Kulam gave their report today. Siddhanathaswami described the long process of preparing items recently imported from India for sale in the Minimela. They have some marvelous offerings coming on line soon.
The Ganapati Kulam has completed the editorial work on Hinduism Today and Sivakatirswami is now preparing the job for shipping to the printer. It’s another amazing issue, this one is full of “humanity” with so many people stories. Coming to you soon.
What is happening in the world is supposed to be happening, not because God wants it to happen but because man created it. There is no advantage, as a normal citizen, to get disturbed by violence in the world. Impact your own sphere of influence by being a peaceful person, radiating compassion and concern for others. Take responsibility, realizing karma is the source, our creation, attracting the people we encounter, the experiences we go through.
