I just moved to Portland and decided to drift around the city a bit. Interesting city, full of life. Then I came across some Hindu graffiti.
From what I gather, these sun wheels all in a row there are a sure sign that the Hindus are in Portland. In fact, this must be the spot where the Hindu Youth hang out. Portland locals said the neighborhood is not really friendly to Hindus here, and anti-Hindu groups don’t let the Hindus gather in the open without a fight. But there are enclaves like this alley, and other sacred spaces just for Hindus. There are so few sacred spaces left for Hindus! Too bad they don’t tell you where they are in the Portland tour guide books.
