Photos From Our Travelers

Sannyasin Siddhanathaswami sends us some photos of Oregon, where Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, Sannyasin Shanmuganathaswami and he are currently traveling.

Satguru on Mission to Portland

The mathavasi's database program 4D is holding another summit for advanced education and the Pilliyar Kulam is making the trek. Satguru will be spending some time in darshan sessions and presenting at the Portland Balaji Temple. He will give a talk titled Hinduism: A Multifaceted Religion.

Another Mission to Testify

Acharya Arumuganathaswami and Sadhaka Jayanatha flew to California over the retreat in order to give a testimony to the Instructional Quality Commission hearing. There will be about 83 public testimonies given from Hindus and several scholars arguing points for how to teach Hinduism in the California schools. One of the main issues that has come up is whether to call "India", "South Asia" or just keep it "India."

Recent Trip to California

Acharya Arumuganathaswami and Natyam Jayantha recently returned from several days on the mainland. The two were invited to an event at the Sunnyvale Hindu Temple in the Bay Area, which celebrated the success and bright future of the Center for Dharma Studies at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) in Berkley. Acharya had been asked to be the primary guest speaker and give a presentation on the current position of Hinduism in academic studies and public education. While in the area, our two monks had time to attend several other meetings, do some exercise-driven exploring and visit with our local members, namely the Golden Gate Mission members. Overall it was a successful and uplifting trip.

Travel Mission

Acharya Arumuganathaswami and Natyam Jayanatha are off to California for several events. The main focus will be for Acharya to speak at the Dharma Civilization Foundation meeting of which 600 to 800 people are expected. The DCF is funding the university chair at Irvine, and the Hindu center at Berkeley’s Graduate Theological Union.
