Bodhintha and the stewards of Hindu Heritage Endowment meet with the accounting staff for the second quarter 2014 HHE meeting.
We don't know for sure but this may be one of the biggest papayas ever harvested here. The Siddhidata Kulam has been carefully collecting papaya seeds from the most successful varieties for many years and slowly developing a strain that does well here in our environment. This one was about the size of a basketball.
Our two swamis were deluged with affection and care in Southern California. After a visit to the home of Ravi & Sheela Visswanathan the monks sent to the home of Dasan and Shakti Mahadevan, their first visit there. Some thirty devotees joined for the evening. Dasan did a Ganesha puja with great affection and then another for the sandals of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, after which all chanted Bodhinatha's 108 names in English and Sanskrit.
All adjourned to a lovely space with 12-foot high ceilings and as they gathered Mayuresh, just 12, played a tabla solo with great concentration, his graceful fingers revealing the drum's potential.
Paramacharya then told some Gurudeva stories and answered questions until it was time for the special dinner that all had prepared.
A joyous evening for all...
