Visit to Himalayan Acres

Today was a retreat day at the Aadheenam, a break from our daily routine, and Dr. Thiagarajan joined us for a trip across the river to our agricultural land. For a change of pace from the intensive meetings of the past few days, he had the opportunity to drive our big Case tractor under the supervision of one of the Swamis.

Aran Veylan and Potriyan Sivanathan joined us for the journey. They are members of Saiva Siddhanta Church and have come to the Aadheenam on the task force program which gives them an opportunity to serve and do sadhana along with the monastics.

After our milk cows have served us well and are too old to be bred again for milking, we move them to Himalayan Acres to live out their years. We searched for the cows on the more than 300 acres of land and finally found then close to our equipment tent in a shady grove of trees. Here Potriyan cautiously greets Chaturti.

    For someone who´s not a hindu, like myself, this kindness to an animal brings me faith in human species and also hope that we achieve a higher level in love – someday! Really touching.
