Jaya Sivaraja On His Way home

Woody Waits (recently given the name Jaya Sivaraja) has completed his six-month visit to learn about the monastic path and our monastic order in particular. He returns to Seattle, Washington area tomorrow, to think over his life and decide whether to pursue family life or monastic life. After some time, he will inform us of his decision.

If his spiritual intentions are fulfilled, he will be pursuing his full conversion to Hinduism, finishing his Master Course study, and receiving his Namakarana Samskara as Jaya Sivaraja.

We thank him for his presence and all his service over the past six months, and wish him well.

    Jaya will fly to his island birth home and be greeted by the scent of cherry & apple blossoms, hundreds of skunk cabbages & daffodils, rich earth, 3 dogs, 3 cats, one wild black horse, friends & family. His visit will be a blessing. Although he and his twin sister were born on my birthday, and I named him Woody, I easily know him as Jaya now. His presence at the Himalayan Academy has risen my spirit one-thousand fold!

    Aum Namah Sivaya, many blessings, Amma Anne Deer

    OM OM,

    Jaya is a lovely hard working young man. Whichever path he chooses, he will be a gift to all his associates. Best wishes to you, Jaya! I hope I will see you in Kauai again some day.

    Om Jai Ganesha, who leads us always on the Right Path!
