If there are any angels out there, here are some things we could use: Kitchen Defender® water filter, digital camera for documentation and promotional purposes ($550), large poster of Swami Vishnu for exterior ($450 + installation), outdoor poster frame ($100), indoor poster frames ($60 for 10), tambourines, and a simple, small drum or two.

The Universe has already bountifully provided the tankless water heater, the 3D lettering for exterior signage, the color printer, the projector, two 8ft collapsible tables, and the sewing machine we had wished for!

May the grace of the gurus continue to bless this endeavor. Om shanti.
