Departing yesterday for a long day of travel from Kauai to Sacremento, California. Acharya Arumuganathaswami and Sadhaka Jayanatha, got up today and joined over 200 people to be present for another very important Instructional Quality Commission Meeting. The commission is entering the final phase of review of edits to the California text book content standards. Key statements about India and Hinduism are the focus for our team and 100 plus more Hindus who joined to make their presence felt and give testimony. Hard work done by Acharya in collaboration with Professor Shiva Bajpai and other scholars were submitted under the auspices of the Uberoi Foundation. These were well received and quite a few were adopted. Several years ago most Hindus were not even aware of these very important and significant proceedings. Through Acharya’s work the flame of awareness has been lit across the entire Hindu community, who will no doubt continue working for the cause of proper representation of our faith in the education of our children in the decades to come.

Monks on Mission: Canada, California and New York

The current trip Satguru and monks are on is going well. We get an insight into the details from Satguru himself:


On Saturday morning we held a satsang at Easvan and Devi Param's home. I gave a version of the tyemmûîf talk from a few weeks ago at the Sun One homa, staying within throughout the day starting at 66.66%. Dinner with Easan and Sundari Katir at Walnut Creek with a productive conversation on their various outreach activities.

Sunday morning we had four, half-hour individual darshan sessions in a quiet outdoor area at the hotel in Pleasant Hill. That evening was a satang with the Sri Lankan bhajanai group in Fremont, California. Somehow they managed to pack about one hundred devotees into the home! Singing for an hour followed by my talk on dharma. The talk was well-received. 

We departed the hotel in the wee hours of the morning, 4:30 AM to be exact. 8:30 Am flight SFO to Vancouver. Cleared immigration and customs with a bit of effort and then we were met by Jai and Ganga Murugan and Nagarajan Pillay. Dinner at an Indian restaurant with a group of 31, more than we expected. Excellent conversations during dinner. Aum Namah Sivaya

On the Road Again!

Today Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, Sannyasin Shanmuganathaswami and Sannyasin Siddhanathaswami packed their luggage and headed for the airport. The traveling team is headed to California, Vancouver, Victoria, Chicago and Syracuse on a whirlwind two-week trip. Om Namah Sivaya

Siddhanathaswami gives us the latest report from the road:

Yesterday and today have been packed with 4D sessions. During lunch break we take a walk around town.

Each morning we walk about 10 minutes along the river to get to the summit. Lots of birds, plants and trees.
