Today at Kauai Aadheenam it seems like all the planets moved into constellation “Dynamic Activity” all at once. On the roster was a dry day bringing the much-awaited cement pour of Iraivan’s roof, a visit by Sadhaka Tejadevanatha’s father and sister, more pilgrims arriving for Sivaratri, a bus load of Patels who are attending a conference of hoteliers on Oahu, and then flew to Kauai to visit the temple, interviews by Pacific Journal reporter and photographer doing a story on the monastery and temple and a mini-milestone on the railing of the North Chinna-Gopuram, and also the pouring of the cement for the Anna Purna Gardens Ganesha. And especially bright for today: some good news from Sri Lanka!
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
