This week the monastery was visited by Aiyasawmy Dorairajan, a long-time devotee of Gurudeva's work. His parents, Trichinopoly and Meena, were studying with the late Markandeya Peruman in the 80s and are devotees of the Meenakashi Temple in Pearland, Texas. Gurudeva visited their home several times and was received with a pada puja. This memory was regaled by Aiyasawmy during the Ganapati Kulam morning meeting, something that has stuck with him since. Aiyasawmy is a doctor performing his residency in Louisiana.
