Jananivasa and Nrsirhha Kavaca Prabhus performed an experimental abhiseha, which was breathlessly observed by a few who were present. They wanted to see how the water flowed ancl if everything was okay with the deities. The altar's scaf- folcling is complete devotee, Prtambara Prabhu, a Swedish devoree who lives in Mdydpur for half the year, is a professional scafflolder, and he has been organiz- ing the team, includingJapa (the son o[ NareSvara and Krsnarnpa Prabhus). Japa spent his birthday yesterday helping with the construction. Also on rhe team is Maitreya (Bharata Maharaja's and Bhakta Gana's son), which makes me wonder if this family descended lrom the spiritual world to organize this installation.
