    Earlier this year I was cordially invited by the secretary of the Mayor of Dallas, Mike Rawlings, to perform the invocation for the Dallas City Council Briefings.  I originally met Amanda Sanchez, his secretary several years ago at the temple.  She had come with a group of students for a school project to attend a temple tour and interview.  This video will be the third invocation that I have done for the Dallas City Council.  -January 18th City Council Briefing The video...

    The Sadhu Sanga Retreat was really a treat for the heart. His Holiness Jayadvaita Swami started off the event on the first morning by giving us a clear understanding of what the word sanga is all about. It is association, but not superficial association. It is just like a scientist's convention where they gather together and share their realizations, devotees similarly gather to hear and chant about Krishna, that is sanga, association. The retreat was set in the beautiful town of Wimberley,...

    Every morning I do the puja to my household arca-vigraha, Lakshmi-Narasimha. I like to offer a variety of seasonal fresh flowers and sometimes ripe fruit from my garden. In this month of July in England it is described as summer, although it is cool and raining quite a bit. But there is still a great variety of flowers available. And my raspberries have been ripe for two or three weeks and the blueberries are just about ready. Here are some photographs of this morning’s altar: Here are...
