Our local friends, Kim, Roni and Lucie from the Napali Paddle Club. They just completed a race to the Napali Coast and came back in time to ride the waves of darshan flowing through Kauai Aadheenam. They each had a chance to meet with Bodhinatha after the tour and were radiant from the experience.

There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
