Sun One begins a highly auspicious phase at Kauai Aadheenam. Preparations are being made for the gold-leafing work on Iraivan’s Gopurams. We have Chitra Puja this phase, followed by Vaikasi Vishakam which is the 60th anniversary of Gurudeva’s initiation by Yogaswami.
We also will be officially launching the new Hinduism Today web site on Sun Three so, stay tuned!

Today was also the day of the year when the Sun was directly over head of Kauai. At this longitude and latitude at about 12:30 pm — you had no shadow!
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.
