A new doctor on Kauai, Dr. Owen Prentice, came for a visit today with his wife, Melissa, who is a French teacher. Here they are visiting with Paramacharya Palaniswami.
After Owen completed his medical training on the East Coast, he and Melissa lived in New Zealand for two years, growing their own food, living off the land, then they moved to Honolulu for a year. Now Owen works at the Kauai Medical Clinic and Wilcox Hospital in Lihue, specializing in emergency medicine.
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.
