Kulapati Vel Alahan and Kulamata Valli have moved to Kauai.
Though Vel departed his lumber business in Colorado, he does not at all consider himself retired. Now he is more of a free lance entrepreneur with the option to take time out and be of service to the mission and the temple. Once or twice each week he comes to the Aadheenam for a morning and leaves the world behind while he works on plant care in solitude and silence.
Valli is also actively serving by helping in the Minimela with our guest hosting services.
It’s wonderful to have your support!
