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.

Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
