On May 22, 2012 we will celebrate the 16th anniversary of the installation of our beloved Deities Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Gandharvika Giridhari Jiu here in Soquel. We are most blessed by Srila Gurudev to have such beautiful manifestations of His mercy here.
They are served by our large family of devotees who come throughout the week to offer seva in the forms of cooking, collections, cleaning, flower garlands, classes, puja, gardening, maintaining the property and of course honoring Prasadam.
In honor of this auspicious occasion we are offering the following pictures of Their Lordships in a selection of Their many outfits we had the fortune to make over the years. Many, many devotees have helped with their generous devotional energy giving donations of their time, money, cloth, jewelry and even going shopping for me. I am indebted to all of them for their help in this seva. I must give special appreciation to my husband who has helped with the finances for every single outfit allowing me to maintain this service. Credit must also be given to Sripad Parvat Maharaj who took the majority of these images.
