Kannan and Jan Eluthesen made their first pilgrimage To Kauai Aadheenam. Originally from Malaysia, they both met while studying in Honolulu, live there for a while, then settled in California. They are friends of Deva and Gayatri Rajan and occasionally come to the Golden Gate Mission satsang.
They love the grounds and think many, many people will come when Iraivan Temple is complete.
Kannan has been helping this past week working with Deva and Acharya Kumarswami on a project for the Swayambhu Lingam art display that will be installed on San Marga… watch for news on this in the months ahead. He has many years of experience in IT systems having work for Kaiser Permanente and had a good consultation meeting with Sivakatirswami giving us some guidance on developing a media database on our web server.
Thank you for your help Kannan!
Our pilgrims meet with Paramacharya Palaniswami who gave them an over view of the big picture of how monastery functions and our publications and artwork development.
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.
