Bodhinatha Comes Home to Bless the Arch

Bodhinatha arrived home this afternoon. We had prepared a special surprise for him: the blessing of the newly installed archway.

Jai Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswamiki Jai!

The arati for the arriving holy man is held at the new entrance.

Bodhinatha offers a shower of flowers and then takes the first step through the archway.

The traditional gift giving to the silpis.

Then everyone passes through, throwing a handful of flowers up to the archway.

It’s good to have our two brothers, Shanmuganathswami and Siddhinathaswami home too!

Guest of Honor — Radhanath Swami

Today we were blessed to have the holy presence of Radhanatha Swami from the Radha Gopinath Mandir in Mumbai, India. A pure, humble radiant soul he has a large following in India and has always wanted to visit Kauai Aadheenam.

He was impressed with the darshan of Kadavul temple and Iraivan.

Brother Bruno and Amma Debora

Our brother and amma are coming to visit daily.
