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.

Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within. Dharma is: "The orderly fulfillment of an inherent nature or destiny," working on instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Destiny is fixed: Realization. Personal dharma, "your own perfect pattern in life", is different for the sannyasin and the householder.
