Acharya Arumugaswami and Sadhaka Satyanatha were on Himalayan Acres today with members Durvasa Alahan and Thandu Sivanatha with hired workers Johnathan and Joe today.
The team prepared 5 gallon planters with soil and wood chips on top and potted almost 200 Agave plants. These grow to be gorgeous plants, five feet in diameter. It required 1,250 gallons of good dirt, hand-shoveled into the pots by brave souls.
We will plant 2,000 agaves over the next few days. When they are mature, the sale of this very popular plant will provide income to help maintain the cost of Himalayan Acres.

Hard work – and a beautiful result! The “Himalayan Acres” property is becoming quite a “greenhouse” for beautiful plants. Dear Arumugaswami, if you need any help with the tractor please let me know 🙂 Congratulations to you all.
"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."
