From the Habibis.....
       Thank you for everything, DiAnahita. It is always so beautiful & wonderful to be with you on your land with your animals.  Thank you for all the songs & stories, new friends & old. I loved sharing together more deeply our lives & sharing songs & zikrs.   Thank you for your generosity & grace & amazing organizational skills & leadership.
        The Universal Worship outside in the sacred manuscript of nature was also so wonderful! I love your land & the Spanish moss & the heart shaped lake.  We appreciate you so much & have much gratitude ever so much for YOU. 
                                               Love always, Jessica

Patrick Harrigan has returned to Gainesville Florida from Washington DC on the occasion of a sudden visit to Washington DC by H.H. the Baba Sheikh, spiritual leader of the Yezidi minority community of Iraq. Patrick had been asked by the Yezidi and Hindu communities in America to go to Washington DC urgently to arrange for the Baba Sheikh and other Yezidi leaders to visit the Murugan Temple of North America on the sixth day of Skanda Sasti (October 29) to witness the Surasamharam or "Annihilation of the Demonic Horde" by Skanda-Murugan the pan-Indian god of Tamil poetry, love, and war.

Dances of Universal Peace honor religious traditions of the world by chanting phrases from holy scriptures & oral traditions.

Everything is taught in the moment as we join our voices together.
