Beautiful Hawaiian flowers brighten up the pathway leading to the Kadavul Temple. These Guzmanias were a gift from the owner of a giant nursery on the Big Island, wanting to share his abundance with the monastery. Thanks, David!
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.
