My brother-in-law, Simeon, and his wife Shannon, had their wedding ceremony yesterday at Mount Soma. It was beautiful. Of course, many family members and friends attended.
The manner in which the attendees received the Vedic tradition was quite impressive. Their openness, to something that was so clearly foreign to what they have known, was most respectable. That, in and of itself, said a great deal about the good fortune of Simeon and Shannon… to have such noble support and love from family and friends.
Needless to say, my desire was intense to get up and explain the significance of the proceedings in terms of Vedic knowledge, which is not only a great art but also a highly technical science. However, I managed to control myself and allow the festivities to proceed in a joyous and light-hearted manner.
Admittedly, I did corner my nephew, whom I am proud to say will be attending Clemson next year to pursue a degree in engineering. I gave him a short course in the Veda and am thankful to him for listening.
The day was a great deal of fun for everyone!
Congratulations Simeon and Shannon! A wonderful place to start your life together, with all the support the Community brings.
Jai Siva Sankara
Wow, that is so beautiful. It is wonderful when two great people find each other. Seeing this makes me realize, how lucky the people are that live at Mt Soma. I really can’t put it into words, except beautiful!
Congratulations Shannon and Simeon! Thank you for sharing this wonderful picture for all of us that were unable to attend.
Blessings to you Guru Dev
