This is Seshadri and Ranjani with their three children. They live in Chicago area and Ranjani is the cousin of Professor Vasudha Narayanan who we have worked with over the years in our publications. The family had good discussions with Bodhinatha about significance of the temple, and then discussed some of our publications with Arumuganathaswami, such as the history lessons.
Our longtime friends and past Innersearch participants, Ramani and Prema Iyer from Adelaide, Australia, brought one of their children and family to visit Hawaii for the first time. Veena and Debabrata Dahm with children Nikita, Alicia and Jai. They had a fun meeting with Bodhinatha including what is the source of happiness.

Follow Gurudeva's teachings in a serious way; take up a daily vigil, sandhyavandana, worshiping at the change of days. It takes time to change and master our character, soften the ego, purify the subconscious. Welcome correction from the living guru. Be on the spiritual path, the path of change. The challege of daily sadhana lifts up energy and the instinctive and intellectual mind don't strengthen unknowlingly.
