Today the Siddhidata Kulam gave their report at lunch. We are sending the four tires from our caterpillar skid steer to Honolulu to be filled with rubber. This is a major innovation for our land maintenance vehicles because it means this piece of equipment will never again have a flat tire!
The team continues work on several key projects: a new fence line on the Northwest edge of the property between the Iraivan land and the adjacent University of Hawaii agricultural station. Hopefully this will help prevent entry of our porcine friends (wild boar).
Work continues out front by the walk where the koi pool is that is adjacent to the pali (valley cliff-face going down to the river. The team is repairing 20 years of erosion that has hollowed out the earth beneath the walk and pool there.
October is here and nights are cooling down slowly so the team is also working on preparing the garden for winter crops: broccoli and cauliflower. As we head into fall we also will be seeing our seasonal fruits: lots of guavas star fruit right now, and soon oranges and grapefruit.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
