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.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
