The monastery got a call from the folks that ship containers between the islands. "You have some live plants here."
We took the 11-mile journey to the dock, to find 13 boxes of plants. They were a gift from a Big Island grower who wanted to share this amazing flower with the monastery. 180 plants in all, red, yellow, pink. This plant is called Guzmania. Thanks you, David! They will bring a new color to the temple gardens.
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
