On November 8, 2008, Joshua Einhorn and Stanley Harris committed to a loving relationship at a Blessing Ceremony in the Chatsworth district of Los Angeles. One hundred family members, friends and ISKCON devotees celebrated.

Santa Barbara ISKCON temple president Sarvatma das officiated. Govinda's of Los Angeles served prasad. H.H. Hridayananda das Goswami conferred this blessing, via e-mail:

"Our love for each other is a reflection of God's love for us. Thus, the perfection of every relationship is to see God in each other.

"May God bless Joshua Norman Einhorn and Stanley Earl Harris, both devoted souls, as they commit themselves to each other in the spirit of God's love for them. May Joshua and Stanley always please God through true love for each other.

"By such true spiritual love, may they always be, each for the other, a source of spiritual inspiration and happiness. May their relationship lead them, patiently and steadily, back to our real home in the spiritual world, where all relationships become eternal and perfect."
