Our gold gilding team is off today. Meanwhile a steady stream of Hindu pilgrims is coming daily.
Thambyrajah and Karen and family are visiting Kauai for the first time from St. Louis, Missouri. Thambyrajah's brother from Honolulu also came to the island (far left). Bodhinatha gave some advice about ferreting out their chilrens' natural talents and interests and developing those, which the current public education system doesn't necessarily do a good job of.
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Dasami Tithi, Sun One, Wednesday, June 17th.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
