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.

Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
