Sivakamisundari and Shanmugasundaram from Michigan. She is daughter of Mr and Mrs Nellaiappan, longtime sishyas in Chennai
Sivamkamisundari and Shanmugam visited today from Michigan. Sivamani is the daughter of a great friend and devotee of the monastery, Nellaiappan. He cares after the monks whenever we are in India and he's been doing that for several decades.
The monastery has collected some photos of the weekly tour group.
The monastery was fortunate to host Swami Advaitananda, a Chinmaya Mission Sannyasin carrying forward the work of Swami Chinmayananda and Swami Tejomayananda. Swami has recently been appointed to head the San Jose, California center. He also is presently the resident Acharya of Chinmaya Vibhooti in Kolwan. He has served Mission centers in Indore, Allahabad, Kolkata, Durban and Mumbai. He is an outstanding teacher with great spiritual and intellectual depth. Swamiji has taught two batches of students in the arduous Vedanta Course in Hindi at Sidhabari and one batch in English at Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, Mumbai, as the Acharya-in-charge. His visit brought great joy, as he is a Sivabhaktar to his core.
