Today the Love the Journey executives visited the monastery to share their work on our island. They are hospice and drug addiction experts opening Kauai’s first resident drug rehabilitation home.
Interestingly, they are all a one family. Father and mother, Arvin and Mellissa Montgomery, founded Love the Journey, daughter Aurora is the financial officer and the son’s wife, Bree, is the IT and PR person. Daughter Maya is just 13 and going to school.
Dedicated and competent souls all working as a family to serve Kauai’s family. Gurudeva always had the monastery help with such initiatives, and so we are working on ways we can assist their efforts.
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
