We had quite a large group today. Public tour day offers a rare opportunity for guests to meet Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, sit in his loving presence and have their book purchases signed personally.
This couple are newlyweds from Edmonton and enjoy both a book signing a blessing from our Satguru.
Another beautiful couple who enjoyed the many dimensions of Kauai Aadheenam and especially a few precious moments with Bodhinatha.
Our photographer was needed on a separate tour for some senior citizens today so we only a few photos. This little pilgrim demonstrated the pure soul within.
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.
