Jagdish and Namrata Ragade with their two children Anusha and Shreya are on pilgrimage from Oregon. They made their first visit in 2010, then Namrata started formal Master Course studies and also returned for a personal sadhana pilgrimage, and Jagdish attended our 2011 weekend retreat in California. Anusha (the older sister) expressed how there is so much to see on the grounds and it’s so great to be out in nature like this.

Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form.
