This is Jai Ganesha (Peter Eschwey) with his wife Emily and daughters Ambika and Gauri from Oregon. Peter has visited Chidambaram temple in India and befriended the dikshitar priests there who know us. He gave his younger daughter her first solid food in Bodhinatha’s presence today.
For our "Great Departure" we prefer to be at home in a religious, uplifting environment, in a clear minded high state of consciousness, having resolved all differences and fulfilled all obligations. There is nothing to fear: "Death is a blissful, light filled transition." We then get settled in the inner worlds with like-minded people of similar religious beliefs.
