Some of our local concrete worker friends came on August 1st to pour a concrete and rebar foundation for the new entrance archway. It’s just behind the Nepali Ganesha shrine.
On the last day of August the silpis began the process of placing the foundation stones for the new arch gateway at the monastery entrance.
Mixing mortar by hand and wiggling the stone into place with a bar. The placement and leveling of these foundation stones are mission critical for the arch. Stay tuned as the project progresses to a beautiful now entry to Kauai Aadheenam.
Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within. Dharma is: "The orderly fulfillment of an inherent nature or destiny," working on instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Destiny is fixed: Realization. Personal dharma, "your own perfect pattern in life", is different for the sannyasin and the householder.
