Swamis' Visit to Midland, Texas


On Monday and Tuesday, Sadasivanathaswami and Senthilnathaswami visited West Texas, invited by the Mrunal and Padmaja Patel family, who are Master Course students.

The premier event was a satsang attended by about 60 people in the Midland-Odessa area's small Hindu community. Topics ranged from the most spiritual to the most earthy, this being a small minority community within the most thickly conservative, evangelical Christian region of the country. Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami's upadesha was profound, and the questions and answers engaging for one and all.

The following morning was Chitra nakshatra, so our swamis went again to the Patel home to perform pada puja for Gurudeva. The vibration created by the puja was not unlike that at Gurudeva's shrine in Kadavul Temple on Kauai after such a puja!

    A very actinic puja room! I like the way Ganesha, Kartikeya and Nataraja are arranged. The red color carpet reminds me of Kadavul. The whole thing is very nicely done. Great job!
