Arumugaswami took the silpis to our annual farm fair yesterday. They encountered Congressman Neil Abercrombie, who is campaigning for governor. He presently represents Hawaii’s 1st district in Washington and was instrumental, along with other congressional representatives, in getting changes made to the US Religious Worker Visa Program that allowed the silpis to come to Kauai under the R-1 visa to work on the temple. He was happy to meet the group, asked how to say “hello” in their language and then greeted each with “Vanakkam.”
The idea of Monistic Theism is seen in the three perfections of God Siva. Theism is the face of evolving, monism is always the Truth. We have pure consciousness and the source of pure consciousness, Absolute Reality. The soul body is maturing. The nucleus of your soul and Parameshvara are identical, you just have to realize it. Imkaif, Parasiva, one of the three perfections--you can't describe it.
