Today is Sun Three and the Siddhidata Kulam gave news of their activities. Every day they spend 1.5 hours picking fruits and vegetables for all of us. They have really mastered the garden and recent sunny weather had helped a lot. Almost all the vegetables we eat now are grown right here at Kauai Aadheenam. We don’t even buy potatoes any more, substituting breadfruit, cooking bananas and other root vegetables. This self-sustainability and pure nourishment was one of Gurudeva’s big goals for the monks and the Siddhidata Kulam is to be congratulated for getting us there!
1.5 hours to pick fruits + gardening is real sport!! Congratulations to the Siddhidata Kulam! Self sustainability of a divine group is of great importance. This achievement is worthy of great applause and celebration! Aum.
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
