Deva Rajan has been working with Sadhaka Tejadevanatha for several months to acquire an anvil for the monastery’s metal working needs. After searching high and low Deva’s son Kailash located a 180lb England Anvil at the local community College in Concord, California.
Deva estimated that anvil is over 100 years old!!
Over the retreat Sadhaka Tejadevanatha set up the Anvil and began the long process of refinishing it.
Thanks to Deva and Kailash for the very useful gift to the monastery!!!

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.
