We count the years of our life together beginning with Gurudeva founding the Subramuniya Ashram in Alaveddy, Sri Lanka, shortly after he was initiated by Siva Yogaswami. The power of the lineage was passed on to the being of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami and from him to Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.
Through six decades that great spark has grown and manifested today as Kauai Aadheenam. With its small band of dedicated, loyal monks who have sacrificed their lives to serve the Parampara, who have stuck with it, “through thick and thin…” Supported by a small band of devoted and steadfast sishya, from Kauai Aadheenam the message of the Kailasa Parampara has reached out and touched the hearts, minds and souls of hundreds of thousands the world over.
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
