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.
"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."
