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.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
