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.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
