During the retreat phase local mission members took Swamiji towards the North Shore. Along the way we thought he would enjoy seeing the Baba Nityananda shrine at Jeff Lindner’s place. Jeff graciously allowed us to visit even though he was in the air that day heading back to Kauai from the mainland.
Jeff’s property is a feast for the eyes with many images of exquisite beauty
Here Swamiji is about to enter Jeff’s shrine to Baba Nityananda.
It gives the feeling of entering a deep cave. Immediately inside the door are some beautiful paintings.
The atmosphere is still and sacred. We heard that Gurudeva was invited here when the shrine was installed.
The room is surrounded by pictures of will known Saints, Sages and Guru’s of the highest caliber. These are just a few.
Whale watching from the balcony.
Magnificent views from Jeff’s home.
His home is overflowing with Gods and Sages.
Jeff’s personal library.
Anandra was our delightful host and served Swami and all of us a ginger orange refreshment.
The views from Jeff’s home are spectacular
Next we went to the Light House. A bit late to enter the bird sacturary we did spy a Monk seal below.
Next we went to Kealea Beach where Swamiji loved putting his feet in the water.

The waves were coming faster than we could run!
Watching the Hawaiian surfers got everyone in the mood.
The outing allowed us time to be with Swamiji and swap Gurudeva, Trichy Swami stories!
Parking restrictions have limited the Public Tour to a few lucky souls this week.
Question of the week:
“How do such a few monks take care of all of this and all the programs you are telling us about?”

The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. "Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe." When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.
