On the left is our Chief Priest, Seetharama Sastry, and next to him is the priest who manages many of the most important temples in the Kanchipuram area. He has been an incredible source of support, access to temples, and organizer of priests for our various Puja.net programs.
Most of all he is without question the hardest working priest I know. He manages a thriving patasala (school) training a siable number of young men to become priests and pundits, at the same time he is responsible for the puja programs at many temples. He never seems to be in one place for very long! So we were pleased to be able to give him a new motorcycle to use in his work.
