Bodhinatha and Arumuganathaswami are currently in DC for Bodhinatha's prayer which will open the House of representatives tomorrow. Here the are in front of this statue of Ghandi. The following photos are of a beautiful statue of Goddess Saraswati in front of the Indonesian embassy, across the street from the Indian Embassy. It's just been completed by Balinese workers.

This statue has yet to be dedicated, so hasn't been in the news.
