Deva Seyon and his grand-daughter Basanti hosted a special group today. They are the Board of Directors of the Garden Island Arts Council (all volunteers who guide the introduction of art to our island, including such things as having handicapped children paint their crutches artfully).
Their president, Carol Yotsuda, is probably the most well known artist on the island of Kaua’i and one of the most respected in the state of Hawai’i and elsewhere; Carole is officially designated as a Living Treasure for Kaua’i and for the state of Hawai’i. Anne O’Malley was there as a journalist from the Garden Island newspaper.
They were especially eager to see the extraordinary spiritual artwork that the monastery has commissioned, and Palaniswami took some time to share S. Rajam’s amazing work and stories with them.

Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
