The holiday visitor surge is upon us. Thanks to the generous response from our members we have a team of hosts working through the next two weeks.
Kulapati Easan Katir and Kulamata Sundari flew over from California, Shyamadeva Dandapani is here from Alaska, Kulapati Vel Alahan and Kulamata Valli have moved to Kauai. These along with our Kauai members make a big team for guiding tours. Easan says, “A large group visited Iraivan Temple today. Families were from Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, San Diego, SF Bay Area.”
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
