The Aadheenam Celebrates Thai Pongal

Yesterday the monks enjoyed Thai Pongal. Boiling a pot of sweet rice in the morning, and savoring a delicious lunch together, the monks celebrated the consistent harvest of fresh fruits and vegetables that the monastic gardens produce.

KURAL 1032
Farmers are the linchpin of the world, for they support all who take up other work, not having the strength to plow.

KURAL 1033
Those who live by the plow live in self-sufficiency. All others lean on them to simply subsist.
