Some better photos arrived from the Martin Luther King Day team representing the Hindu group of the Interfaith Round Table of Kauai that organizes this event each year.
Kulapati Vel Alahan spoke on ahimsa and the relationship between Gandhi and Martin Luther King and sharing Gurudeva’s message that non-violence starts with ending the war in the home, putting an end to domestic violence.
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.
