Yesterday the Monastery began its new phase. Sadasivanathaswami filled in for Bodhinatha at the homa, to burn the prayers and give a short talk afterwards. This phase is a shorter one, of just four days, but it's no less exciting. Sun 1 began with the usual homa, and was a day of many activities, such as the SK's garden care or the GK's work in the woodshop, creating their soon-to-be desks. Sun two, Satguru Bodhinatha and Senthilnathaswami return from their 3 week trip to Texas and Trinidad. It is also Guruthondu day, a day when all the monks get together on a single project, and push it forward with a massive force. Sun 4 will be Mahasivaratri, "Siva's Great Night." Aum Namah Sivaya
