Our Paramparai Ready to Leave for Kauai

Today we received these photos from Jiva Rajasankara in Bengaluru, India. He shares good news that the last of the eight larger-than-life black granite murthis of our Kailasa Paramparai are being crated up for shipping to Hawaii. This has been a marvelous project and the quality of craftsmanship is a wonder to behold. Here is Jiva's note:

"Paramacharya, vanakkam!

Gurudeva, Bodhinathaswami and Tirumular will be leaving India to Kauai in a week's time. The container is expected to come in 2 hours time and we will load the items and the container should leave tomorrow to Chennai port.

We will only have 2 special yestis left to complete Iraivan Temple which comprises of the main temple sanctum and the Nandi Mandapam.

The Iraivan perimeter wall is in progress."

Coming Home

The long journey home was broken for a day and a half in Singapore. There we were able to meet with members for a day.

They took us, over two dozen in all as a few had flown in from Malaysia for the day, to the amazing, three-year-old Garden by the Bay. It's a $billion garden and lives up to what one Singaporean said, "Singapore has mastered the art of the man-made garden."

For two hours we ambled through a giant space covered by glass, and holding tens of thousands of plants.

That afternoon there were vratas given by Bodhinatha and a dinner together. A few rose early to meet us at 4am for our departure to Japan enroute to Honolulu and home.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
