I visited Kauai pilgrimage with my 2 sons and their families. You were kind enough to take us around and arrange for Darshan of Saatgugu Bodhinatha Veylanswami ji. Since then I have thinking of writing to Satguruji but did not know how and on what address. If you let me know, I will be obliged. Recently there was an appeal from Swamiji for donation.

This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
