Mahogany seedlings (foreground) are being repotted to larger pots today the team of Philippino elderly ladies who come to work at the Aadheenam from time to time.
The seedlings were started from home grown seeds procured from some of our island friends.
Wire and bricks will hold the repotted seedlings upright for a year or so. Then they’ll be planted at Himalayan Acres when they’ve grown tall enough. Way off in the future they, along with trees already planted there, can be sold to help finance the activities of the monastery.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
