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.
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
