Two world renowned classical Indian musicians came to visit the temple today. They played a Tala Records concert last night at the Kauai Community College. Kala Ramnath (on the right) has revolutionized the technique of playing the violin, bringing it so close to vocal music that she is acclaimed as “The Singing Violin.”
Ty Burhoe is a tabla master having been a disciple of Ustad Zakir Hussain since 1990. Founder of the Tala Records label Burhoe is a Hawaii resident and is committed to bringing Indian music to Hawaiian island communities.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
