Sunny skies and gentle trade winds transported our guests to the devaloka today. So many kind words of thankful words of praise to our monastics for creating heaven on earth!
Last weeks tour were also a very inwardly quiet group. They moved easily from one stop to the next with deep appreciation and respect for what is being created on the garden island.
We want to give a huge thank you to Easan and Sundari Katir who flew to Kauai from the Silicon Valley for two weeks, giving many personal tours to the many Hindus who visit us during the holiday season.
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.
