End of Phase

We have reached the end of a dynamic phase and head into a three-day retreat.

All is well!

Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming three-day retreat,
until Chaturthi Tithi, Sun One, Sunday, February 20th.

New Addition to Aadheenam Agricultural Endowment

Acharya Arumugaswami and Sadhaka Satyanatha were on Himalayan Acres today with members Durvasa Alahan and Thandu Sivanatha with hired workers Johnathan and Joe today.

The team prepared 5 gallon planters with soil and wood chips on top and potted almost 200 Agave plants. These grow to be gorgeous plants, five feet in diameter. It required 1,250 gallons of good dirt, hand-shoveled into the pots by brave souls.

We will plant 2,000 agaves over the next few days. When they are mature, the sale of this very popular plant will provide income to help maintain the cost of Himalayan Acres.


Thanks to TAKA viewer Maria Alice Santos who suggested that it would help not to miss posts if we had an RSS feed. Well we do, we just did not think to publish the link. But now it is there in the upper right, click to add the TAKA feed to your favorite RSS reader.

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