On the way down the Tiruneri path these three little devas stopped to pose for us. They are from Holland and their mother comes to stay on Kauai for some months every year. Pelr on the left with her younger brother Cameran and littler sister Bo (we are not sure the spellings are correct).
They were full of questions for the monk with the camera
“Where do you sleep? What do you eat? Who feeds you? Can you get married? Why is the dot on your head black? [It was from this morning homa ashes] Can we get a black dot too?”
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
