Austin Visits

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami and Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami visited the Austin Hindu Temple last Sunday, where Bodhinatha gave a talk to a small group in the complex's original Ganesha temple.

Monday presented the opportunity to drop in on the Chinmaya Mission's new facility under construction in Austin. Taking the moniker Chinmaya Sundaram, there will be a significant Siva temple on the premises, along with classrooms for grades 1-12 suitable for a total of 350 students. Brahmachari Girish Chaitanya, who was overjoyed at Bodhinatha's visit, explained that they will probably outgrow the facilities, which will be finished within the month, almost right away. Fortunately more land has already been set aside for expansion.

The next stop was the home of Ravi, Devi and Bhuma Ravindraj in Round Rock, where a handful of local well-wishers--along with Chandran and Sahana Param and their children who are following Bodhinatha throughout Texas--gathered for informal satsang and brunch.

Tuesday evening saw a dinner at the home of Chinna and Sivagami Natesan in Austin, and Wednesday Bodhinatha and Swami drove to Houston to prepare to fly to Trinidad & Tobago for the weekend. Stay tuned for a story on that.
