A Religious Visit to Midland

Following Trinidad, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami and Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami flew back to Texas, this time to Midland, far out west. Arriving in the evening, the first stop was a dinner at the home of Drs. Nalin and Kamal Tolia, some of the monastery's strongest supporters in West Texas.

The next morning, Drs. Mrunal and Padmaja Patel invited Bodhinatha to their home for pada puja satsang. Mrunal performed an excellent puja, Bodhinatha gave a marvelous upadesha and all present were blessed with vibhuti.

One of the days we were in Midland happened to be chitra nakshatra, so the Patel family invited Senthilnathaswami to perform pada puja to Gurudeva's tiruvadi in their shrine room. He did so in the same style it is performed at Kauai Aadheenam. In fact, at the very same time the puja was being performed at Gurudeva's shrine in Kadavul Temple on Kauai. The energy was very high.

    We are all blessed by Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami and Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami to TX particularly Midland and the Dallas area. Satguru Bodhinatha’s dynamic mission for the spreading educational materials regarding Hinduism and spiritual awareness is truly amazing and something v. special. The Monastry’s support has been especially important to sustain the momentum of awareness of Hinduism to our children.
