Finally after weeks of brilliant sunshine a gentle rain was falling as our guests filed into the Banyan Mandapam.
A spider’s web glistens and all the plants seemed to stretch to catch the precious mist.
Even the Banyan bark was rich red with moisture after almost two months with no rain.
As the guests walk out to Nani Kaua falls a double rainbow arches overhead.
Timing is good as we reach Iraivan to a bright sky above.
This timeless view now greets our guests as they mount the foundation and peer over the rope of the entrance.
Even the cactus garden seemed to enjoy the brief rain.
Finally on our last stop the clouds return and give a gentle blessing to all our guests. Many from cold states remarked that Kauai rain is warm & wonderful. This was a very thoughtful group with many, many questions!
The light rain brought some remarkable rainbows that arched right over the temple.

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.
