Sadhaka Tejadevanatha’s father, Chuck Baumann and sister Ashley arrived for a visit. They could not have picked a more auspicious day. Sadhaka Tejadevanatha is an integral part of the Siddhidata Kulam team that is building the temple along with the silpis. Sadhaka’s father is very proud to see first hand the work his son is doing.
Yoginathaswami explains the intricacies of the construction. Chuck is in the business of doing large scale and beautifully designed high end “water features” construction ranging from fancy swimming pools to intricate pools and fountains integrated into marvelous landscapes and residential designs. As a building artisan he can really apprecaite the work going on here.
Ashley is an up-and-coming young associate producer working for the renowned reality show production company, DuBose Entertainment, Hollywood, California.
Hindus believe in each individual as a soul, a divine being who is inherently good. We all have a threefold nature: instinctive, intellectual, intuitive. Develop the intuitive/spiritual/soul nature with compassion, devotion, penance. Use the intellect to help subdue the instinctive mind. Guilt is not a part of Hinduism. There is no eternal hell. You have a continuity of consciousness when you transition to the inner worlds. There is no devil, but there are mischievous "asuras."
