Visitors, Vasant from Sinagapore on Task Force and Dasan Mahadevan on pilgrimage from San Diego, CA are offering help with placing drilled rudraksha beads on the power washing racks.
Each month, weeks before the gathering for working on the rudraksha bead project, Rajadeva Alahan, back left and Durvasa Alahan front right, drill the beads by hand with a small dremel power drill. Kulapati Deva Seyon, front left is always supportive and willing to lend a hand with the project.
New arrivals to Kauai, Chamundi Sabanathan from CA and Jutikadevi Sivaraju from GA ( both in the fore ground) are quick to learn the mala making process. Kamala Guhan has mastered the rudraksha bracelets and makes keychains throughout the month. Isani Alahan and Oma ( Irene Scott) make malas during the month when the stock runs low in the Mini-Mela. All of the devotees are feeling fulfilled working on this karma yoga project.
Ganesha from Orrisa, India lovingly displays the rudraksha malas.

"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."
