Sivathondars: Wailua Mission Members

Predawn finds Wailua Mission members in the "Banyan Cafe" doing what they love the most - Serving Guru Bhaktars. Here we are waiting for those wonderful souls who have come from all over the world to honor our beloved Gurudeva.

Gurudeva arrived in full force about a week before the pilgrims. His Being is palpable and as always - His presence accelerates everything!

The "Banyan Cafe" (instantly transformed Banyan Mandapam) seemed to grow in width and breadth during the night. We just managed to pack in 50 souls last year and somehow this year we can accommodate 100 with some breathing room!

Chai tea, Starbucks breakfast roast and flower teas await.

"Lemurian prasad" is the diet of the ancients. A very actinic blend of fruits, yogurt, milk, honey and nuts. It is a universal food that everyone loves, even the children. Gurudeva used to say it is like having desert for every meal.
