While there, they toured the world famous Palace of Gold, heard a discourse on cow protection, learned many of the stories behind the altars, participated in the chanting of the Holy Names and ecstatic dancing during aarti, and enjoyed prasad.

The students were all well-behaved and inquisitive. Several students…
