Yesterday’s tour day guide, Kulamata Isani Alahan writes: “It was a wonderful day for a tour. There was partial sun, cool breezes and even a few showers. There was a beautiful double rainbow over Nani Kaua Pond as we arrived there. I wish I had gotten a photo. The rainbow made me feel that Siva is always smiling on us.
I shared the basic beliefs of Hinduism at the Vinadhara mound, and all the guests seemed to understand completely and agree.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
