A wedding party from Tennessee visited us several times while on Kauai for a wedding, first to join the weekly grounds tour and then again to have darshan blessings from Satguru Bodhinatha.

Bodhinatha and Arumuganathaswami are currently in DC for Bodhinatha's prayer which will open the House of representatives tomorrow. Here the are in front of this statue of Ghandi. The following photos are of a beautiful statue of Goddess Saraswati in front of the Indonesian embassy, across the street from the Indian Embassy. It's just been completed by Balinese workers. The child in front on the left is Barack Obama, who went to elementary school in Indonesia for two years; he's seen here, sitting with two Indonesian girls. This statue has yet to be dedicated, so hasn't been in the news.
The sacred fire is one of the oldest forms of worship and communion with the inner planes, spanning across many of the worlds religions and traditions. Anyone can write prayers to the devas and Gods to be burned in the sanctified Homa, asking their assistance in the smallest of worldly needs or invoking their help towards the greatest of spiritual pursuits. Today Bodhinatha is traveling in DC, so Sadasivanatha swami burned prayers and gave a talk afterwards. He discussed upcoming travel as well as the pros and cons of the massive spread of yoga worldwide, including the harmful effects of prematurely awakened kundalini.
