Live Near a Place of Worship

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark. — Rabindranath Tagore

When I was a young girl, Thatha and Appa told me — “Kovil illa oril kudi irruka vendam”.

It means “Don’t live in a city or town that doesn’t have a place of worship.”

Thankfully, I have always lived near a temple during my lifetime.

That said, I have only seen one Kumabishekam thus far.

Kudos to Craig and Jill Edwards for making it possible for me to see the second Kumabishekam in my lifetime the weekend of March 3–5.

I can’t wait.
