These are some of the families described in the previous post, plus a new arrival
Multiple families attended our morning 6am Siva homa and than toured the grounds afterwards. From right to left-- Padma and Prabhakar Neppalli on far right are from California; Rajeev and Manju Bhargava are from Alaska and have been involved with the temple project there since they met Gurudeva when he came on the cruise and then gave the Ganesha murti to get a temple started; Srinivas Bhamidipaty with parents-in-law and close friend are visiting from Dallas and just met Bodhinatha there about a week ago. The parents-in-law live at Tirupati town in India and dreamed to visit our place.
The gates are open again to our weekly public tour with the end of Sadhu Paksha. From every imaginable background they come to hear about the Great God Siva and His Iraivan Temple, Satgurus, and the dedicated life of our Monks.
While Bodhinatha is in Texas we are catching up on some images taken during recent tours.
As Satguru Bodhinatha works constantly and actively within the Hindu World, visitors from all walks of life have an opportunity for Darshan during the "open house" or weekly public tour. Many leave with an experience they will not soon forget. Many with books that will give them a deeper understanding and appreciation of the worlds most ancient faith.
Three generations of sevaks. Our Media Studio re-building project is currently being blessed with the hard work and precious professional knowledge of three generations of the Param family. On the right is patriarch Easvan, electrician. On the left is his son, electrician/lighting designer Chandran. And in the center is Chandran's son, 18-year-old Bhajana, a student. All are dedicated members of Saiva Siddhanta Church. It is our delight to have them with us for two weeks. Om.
