Barack Obama’s lucky charms; among them a small murti of Hanuman.
Quite interesting to have a USA president-elect who carries a small Hanuman everywhere with him ‘for luck.’ As all Vaishnavas know, those who carry Hanuman will be carried by Hanuman when they most need him. Apparently Barack Obama heard the stories of Hanuman from his father.
Interesting also that Mr. Obama senior was from the small town of Kisumu in Kenya where there is a temple to Hanuman that’s been there for a very long time. I used to live at that temple back in 1979. Small world.
Small world – and very delicately balanced. We pray that all good fortune and illumination be showered upon Senator Obama in the difficult years ahead.
