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.
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.
