We are in the US this Sunday, staying at the SAT temple in Santa Cruz, CA, USA. Today I took satsang with Nome. It was so very good to be here for satsang again.
Here is a close-up of the Nataraja murti in the Satsang Hall. Jim, who does the flowers for satsang, went pretty wild on Nataraja today. This season of the year has so many flowers blooming, and he makes exquisite use of the blooms.
Here are a few photos from within the temple.
This is the Ramana Shrine at the entrance to the Satsang Hall.
The Satsang Hall before people enter.
Four murtis line the back wall.
Here is Dakshinamurti.
Nome, meditating before satsang.
After satsang there is a Tamil reading from the Ribhu Gita.
Sangita is reading today.
People listen and may read along in the English translation, Song of Ribhu.
Afterward prasad is served downstairs in the Lotus room, and people converse and talk about today’s satsang.
It was so good to take satsang with Nome today.
Monday we fly for the next leg of our trip, for one month in Peru.
