Today the Siddhidata Kulam shared their news. The gardens continue to provide us with lots of fruit and the winter vegetable crops are starting to come in.
One of the big innovations for the kulam has been the installation and configuration of a professional software program for enterprise maintenance. Yoginathaswami has installed this on his own machine as a server and the rest of his team and all the monks can access the program. It is capable of tracking every machine, every vehicle, all our electrical systems and plumbing (sinks showers, bathrooms) in all the buildings. It is quite sophisticated and will be a huge boon for the team that takes care of our total physical infrastructure at Kauai Aadheenam/Iraivan temple.
For example, our fleet (only part of what the Siddhidata Kulam cares for:) one Guru Car (Prius), one Van, one pickup truck, four Kawasaki “mules”, John Deere tractor, Caterpillar skid steer — All these vehicles can be tracked and scheduled for maintenance over time with links to parts vendors and service contacts and accounting for expenses accrued to help analyze costs over time for any given asset. A big leap forward for the SK.
"Hinduism is recognized as the most compassionate, mystical and enlightened faith on the planet." Is India's ancient faith Hinduism a religion or a way of life? All religions are ways of life but there are ways of life that don't involve God and worship. Religion guides our daily life. We encourage deeper religious practices such as the humility developed by selfless service, especially in a temple or ashram, scriptural study, worship in the home shrine and temple, pilgrimage and coming into a sense of oneness with God which meditation can provide.
