A new priest began the sacrifice that is dedicated to Sani propitiation. Kathy is the target of this endeavor. This priest is young & has a very nice voice as he is reciting the mantras. Now Kathy will have to wear a capsule (like Kenny) that is prepared with gemstones inside. Sajal is concerned & rightly so about this sacrifice. The last one presided over by the old priest landed the poor old guy in hospital. He got run into by someone on a bicycle. We were in Darjeeling when we heard the news, so again we assumed it meant the snake ceremony was a success for Kenny. Now this new priest is a whole lot spiffier. He looks pretty neat & clean & well to do in dress, etc. We are all taking this as a sign that he is very successful. I’ll call Kathy later this evening to let her know she’s on the cosmic calendar.

Suzy is hoarding these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups she brought, saying they’re gift items; which she says about everything, yet she’s not given out any of the huge supply she ferried over. She keeps buying things here to give out.

As I started to say; Sajal has concern that this one is going to be tough. Like the snake ceremony, it’s going to require some serious effort, and we all will be putting our attention on the success. Today & tomorrow are for this sacrifice, then on Monday we head into the Rahu propitiation for Angela. Sajal is very positive about this ceremony’s success. Angela will also be receiving a capsule to wear. All of these recipients must agree to wear said capsules, as they take much effort on the part of Sajal to make. Kenny’s in particular, as was reported to him, has a piece of fabric that two cobras were dancing with in the full moon light…
