Dance Performance on Ganesha Chaturthi

Kauai Aadheenam's 2013 celebration of Ganesha Chaturthi was supplemented by a guest dance performance. The dancer was trained in Odissi dance and was clearly very advanced. This short video was taken as she performed one of several dances for the morning's guests and for her students who were traveling with her. Following the performance, Satguru Bodhinatha gave a talk to the group about the basics of Hinduism.
