Iraivan's Yesti Stones Finalized Drawings

Last month we had showed some photos of the Nandi Mandapam Yesti Stone Drawing. After approval of Bodhinatha Veylanswami, Selvanathan stapathi is redoing a new drawing for the final stone carving.

Shekar Stapathi does another part of the drawing.

Manikantan Stapathi, our resident Stapathi helps.

This yesti stone is the stone which flanks the sides of the steps and is used as a barricade and also as a support to hold and climb the steps.

Loganathans From Maryland

Mr. and Mrs. Loganathan darshan with Bodhinatha. Satguru Yogaswami used to walk frequently by his home in Jaffna, sometimes spontaneously coming in to say a few words.
