Today the Pillaiyar Kulam gave their news. Shanmuganathswami told tales of all the shipping scenarios that go on in his world: many of them quite unusual, such as a shipment of rudraksha beads ending up in one part of the country while a shipment bound for Honolulu arrived at the destination meant for the beads in Atlanta!
The Stewards had their quarterly Hindu Heritage Endowment meeting. To get ready for this Siddhanathaswami did a lot of accounting in advance. Also the books and summaries for 2010 finances are closed and one amazing fact surfaced.
Who do you think was the second largest contributor to Iraivan Building fund in 2010?
The Wailua Mission! They clean and string the Rudraksha beads from our own forest, and the sales were abundant in the MiniMela. The entire proceeds to to Iraivan. Amazing! More on this later.
