Sun Three

The Siddhidata Kulam gave its news today. Sadhaka Nilakantha is off on his third “year in the world” discipline, which is one of the traditions established by Gurudeva for the sadhaka. Every three years they go out into the world for 6 months or a year to live as solitary sadhus working at a job, sometimes settling family matters, living as monks during this time, alone. After three successful cycles they remain in the monastery permanently.

So the SK has more work on their shoulders as Sadhaka did a lot in the garden and managing our fruit harvests.

Hinduism Today Site Upgrade

Our Hinduism Today web site has undergone a major upgrade.

For the “web geeks” among us, we use the XOOPs PHP Content Management System and this upgrade was to the latest XOOPS version 2.5. The theme does not look much different than before but is more refined, runs much faster and now sports a a really cool rotating video presentation on the home page. Paramacharya Palaniswami used his Keynote skills to highlight current issue features and Senthilnathaswami ported this to video.

Hindu Press International on the web site will be back online this afternoon, having been off the site for some time during the upgrade.

Pump House, materials and labour have been donated by the contractor.

It is mango season and all the trees are prolific as usual!
