Today we're reminded again of the fruitful plenty that comes from our Aadheenam gardens. Our monks recently harvested a large crop of big, bright green napa cabbage. Also in our garden we've been harvesting and replanting sweet potatoes--a purple variety with wonderful flavor. Several days ago we witnessed a rare event, our bee hive had become over-populated! So, our bees were found preparing themselves to swarm. For a full day, half the hive flew as a group over the monastery searching out their new home. And in other news, we've been continuing the soda-blasting of Iraivan Temple's sanctum. Over time the walls gain a stain from our red, volcanic dust. The soda blaster quickly removes what would have taken months to remove by chisel. Aum.
