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.

Following the performance, Satguru Bodhinatha gave a talk to the group about the basics of Hinduism.
