Pilgrims from Santa Clara, California

Shankar and Aparna Natarajan with little daughter Sahana made their first visit to Kauai from Santa Clara, California. It is Aparna’s birthday today, so they felt extra blessed. They had a wonderful discussion with Bodhinatha about spiritualizing daily life and raising their daughter in the USA to be a good Hindu.
