Last Monday from my office window I noticed a sole Indian gentleman circling the temple verandah on foot. He had apparently tried entering from the upstairs, but that door is often stuck in winter due to cold expansion.

For Vaibhavi and I this was a landmark day. Thanks to Justin (16 rounds, 4 months) and Mikela (16 rounds 1 year), and Cary, their connections in the community, their energy and enthusiasm to share, we tasted one very sweet fruit of 20 years habitation in Spanish Fork, the “Livestock Capital of Utah County”.

Krishna had an ecstatic plan for the delight of the devotees. By four pm festival start the sun burst through the clouds, winds died completely, temperatures rose by a good 10 degrees, and hundreds of determined festival goers began pouring through the main gate.

The father of the bride came from Hong Kong. He was very religious. I could hear him mumbling many of the Sanskrit slokas with me. At the end he happily exclaimed, “I never expected any ceremony this good in America!” . . .
