Saiva Siddhanta Church sishyas Chandran and Sahanadevi Param from California met with Bodhiantha this morning for darshan on the last full day here. They will be returning to California tomorrow.
The family has been spending a lot of time with swamis. On the left, Bhajana, who wants to help with our digital productions, the young man on the right: Jeyendra and the two devas below — “The Twins”, seven-year old Bodhisiva Sankara and his sister, Bela Sundari. Here they are with Sivakatirswami who gave the whole family had a little class on preparation for meditation today. They have also been reading the children’s stories and giving lots of useful feedback to the Arumuganathaswami. Chandran is participating in the planning of the renovation of the Media Lab building, being the lead man on lighting which is his field, and Sahanadevi has been providing a lot of support for our temple and kitchen team helping Sadhaka Nandinatha, and working hard to make sure her family stays on track in their religious and spiritual lives. The children are a new breed, being third generation American Hindus — our future!
