It is a beautiful day at Kauai Aadheenam. All the monks are home from travels and everyone is focused on their work. The weeks of rain have let up and we had a clear bright cool sunny winter’s day. It was indeed yet another perfect day in Siva’s Perfect Universe.
The inside of Iraivan in the morning picks up the early morning sun for magical moments….. Here we are waiting for the Thai Pongal pot to boil over.
