Here at Kauai Aadheenam, the visitor traffic is growing rapidly. Without the help of our members on the island we simply could not keep up with hosting them or managing their purchases and queries at the information center. Our Kauai members are doing Siva thondu, every morning, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year!
The Pillaiyar Kulam took them to an “appreciation luncheon” with Bodhinatha. We want to especially thank Brahmacharini Shama Kumaran, Kulamatas Amala Seyon and Isani Alahan for their years of daily service in this capacity. And now we have additional seva power from Vel and Valli Alahan. With us today are also Kulamata Kavita Mardemootoo and her daughters Basanti and Dipanjali who are here on vacation, but also pitching in helping at the Minimela. They are trained hands at this job since they do the same thing at home in Mauritius which has 1000′s of visitors on the monthly homa days.
Also not with us today, Kulapati Deva Seyon, and Kulapati Durvasa Alahan who are also taking turns from time to time hosting guests on the monks’ retreat days.
Thank you all! Mikka Nandri!

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Patanjali's Yoga Sutras - False Knowledge" (June 15, 2014)
Bodhinatha comments on Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Verses 1.5 through 1.12. The restraint of the mental activities of correct knowledge, erroneous knowledge, fantasy, sleep and memory is achieved through practice and detachment. He focuses up the subject of erroneous knowledge and relates Gurudeva's discussion on how to resolve deep seated erroneous conception from Cognizantibility. Hatha yoga balances ida and pingala. Mindfulness and memory relate. Desire is life. Transmute our desire and change our life.
