Bodhinatha Is Home!

It is always a joyous moment when our Satguru arrives home. His trip was certainly a “Dig Vijaya” (Victory Tour) for spreading his marvelous and practical messages on how to follow Hindu dharma.

All the monks gather to greet their Satguru…

Sadhaka Satyanatha performs the padapuja for the arriving holy man.

Jai Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami-ki Jai!

And welcome home to Shanmuganathaswami who has been putting the trip to good use for all kinds of outreach for the mission.

Bodhinatha writes of his last few days:

Om Sivaya, everyone,

Jai Ganapati.

August 29th early afternoon flight Chicago to Nashville. Keynote at Nashville Ganesha Temple on “Some Practical Suggestions for Hindu Families and Temples.” Over 100 attended and interest was high in the topic.

August 30th morning a visit to Ingram Periodicals, the national distributor of Hinduism Today to all the newsstands in USA and Canada, to discuss how to improve our copy sales through them.


Monastery Gateway Project

Some of our local concrete worker friends came on August 1st to pour a concrete and rebar foundation for the new entrance archway. It’s just behind the Nepali Ganesha shrine.

On the last day of August the silpis began the process of placing the foundation stones for the new arch gateway at the monastery entrance.

Mixing mortar by hand and wiggling the stone into place with a bar. The placement and leveling of these foundation stones are mission critical for the arch. Stay tuned as the project progresses to a beautiful now entry to Kauai Aadheenam.

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