Brandon Carter Meixel from Rocket Science Consulting has flown in from San Franscisco to install our new RAID storage system on “Varuna,” the Aadheenam’s main onsite server for file sharing and many other IT operations within the monastery. The upgrade brings eight terabytes of online storage space plus eighteen terabytes of space for our backup system. He’s having lunch with Senthilnathaswami, who is overseeing his work. Initial installation was successful and data migration from our old RAID storage to the new is in progress, to continue through the night.
After lunch, Senthilnathaswami took our intrepid engineer for a tour of the property. Brandon assembled this photo on his iPhone using an app called Diptic, and tweeted: “Today a monk took a picture of me hanging out in nature wearing city garb. I took a picture of him in monk garb in front of a solar panel.”
What is happening in the world is supposed to be happening, not because God wants it to happen but because man created it. There is no advantage, as a normal citizen, to get disturbed by violence in the world. Impact your own sphere of influence by being a peaceful person, radiating compassion and concern for others. Take responsibility, realizing karma is the source, our creation, attracting the people we encounter, the experiences we go through.
