Dasan and Shakti Mahadeva returned to Kauai to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary, and met near Kadavul temple with the gardeners.
Flowers for Siva. Such bright souls Siva calls to His Island Home.
And other bright souls are here to watch after all the little things, visitors, the MiniMela, and more. Shama and Isani are noble examples of the ancient Tamil adage about service to God. Adiyarku adiyain, I am but the servant of the servants of the Lord.
The river is quieting down after our tropical storm of the past few days.
In the garden today, we have the rarely seen Peanut Butter fruit and flower. Yes, it tastes just like the gooey peanut stuff.
Into the kitchen comes the fresh gifts from the garden. Green peppers.
Anbe sivamayam Satyame parasivam.Prostrations to lord Ganesa.Salutations to Kualmati Isani and Brahmacharini Sharma.You are my role models in my heart.We are blessed to benifit from your selfless service. You both look lovely next to Lord Ganesa.
I always think of how amazing that is like magic to plant food and flowers and see the results. I have great respect for you who tend a garden to arrive at such beauty and of course mouthwatering possibilities(yum yum)Like Grurdeva might say(smile)
"There are three kinds of karma: the karma of all deeds done in our past lives; the karmas we bring into this birth to experience; and the karmas we are making by our actions now."
Karma is an automatic system of divine justice. Karma is self-created destiny; a consequence or fruit of action, karmaphala. By accepting not reacting, performing karma yoga, karma can be softened, mitigated. Seeking the grace of God and guru in the right spirit, the mind focused on the Deity and open to blessings, receiving the intense grace of the Deity in a powerful pilgrimage can actually eliminate karma.
