A beautiful group of souls on today’s tour. Many heartfelt testimonies of “thank you” and appreciation to the monks for opening their home and gardens for all to enjoy this morning.
We count about 80 in this picture and there were others who came later.
The gardens of Kauai Aadheenam lend their own silent message of love to our guests as they walk by.
Bodhinatha makes it a point to promote inter-religious harmony on Kauai and around the world. Joining us today was a local group from St. Raphael Parish in Koloa. Their church, built in 1841 is the first Catholic church built on Kauai. Ironically their pastor is from South India.
Jan Maire and Joeseph. Residents of Colarado and Lawaii, respectively. They have recently returned from South India where they pilgrimaged to many temples including the “Arupadaiveedu” of Lord Muruga. They are modeling their new Rudraksha purchases!
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
