Beautiful clear skies on a warm spring day brought more eager souls to investigate the wonderments of Kauai Aadheenam.
Very special guests today: T.S.Seshadai and his large extended family from Maryland. A long history with the Aadheenam through both Gurudeva and Bodhinatha he is the former President at the Murugan Temple of North America. His family was a delight to have on the tour.

After the tour at the Minimela… a line up for Bodhinatha’s blessing and signature on books today.
Both computers in action at our very busy Minimela with Kulamata Amala Seyon (left), Saroja Devi Manickam (center) on pilgrimage from Colorado helping out and Kulamata Valli Alahan on the right.
Michael Wasylkiw (bottom right), Michael Kempinski (middle) and Steven Cohen are all from the East Coast. They pooled their funds to sponser a stone for Iraivan! So impressed with his meeting with Bodinatha several months ago, Michael Wasylkiw, came back to purchase the Trilogy and sign up for a formal study of the Master Course. He works on Wall Street.

Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being. Vasana daha tantra: Going back and understanding experiences; clearing up the reactions to the past.
