In a recent home ceremony in Seattle, Woody Waits received his Namakarana Samsakara. The ceremony was facilitated by sishya Nitya Nadesan in whose home the rites were performed by Pundit Mahesh Shastri. Welcome to Brahmachari Jaya Shivaraja! Jaya has been to Kauai on Task Force and presently has his mind firmly set on becoming a monk. His father Richard and mother Ann were present at the ceremony and very happy to see her son progress on the spiritual path.
