Very bright souls today on our public tour! Ganesha held back the rain until the last minute of the tour. “Ringing that bell does work” we heard one guest say. (We always ring Ganesha’s little bell before we start and ask for fair weather if possible!)
The silpis are almost at the end of tenure on Kauai. They have become like part of the family here -- so bright and happy to greet the guests and demonstrate their love of carving.
We catch two humble karma yogis in action. Tandu and Toshadeva are so dedicated to bringing Rishi Valley into full bloom by planting hundreds of baby Alamanda.
It is simply astounding how Bodhinatha can step off a plane after traveling around the world, take one little afternoon to rest up and then be back to his relentless service!
Walking away with a Trilogy -- personally signed by Bodhinatha, is the optimum blessing and guaranteed to change the life of our pilgrims.
The trilogy is so heavy we offer free shipping to our tour guests so they don’t have to worry about weight limits when they return to the airport. A truly inspiring day.
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.
