This morning the Aadheenam was engulfed in a short but intense downpour from a flash thunderstorm coming over Mount Waialeale. Here we see the top of the mountain: this is thought to be this rainiest spot on earth with the highest level of rainfall measured anywhere. After the rains go roaring through the mountain drains and we see dozens of waterfalls in the distance.
We are reminded of the classic image of Ganga falling onto the earth, Her torrential power was eased by falling through Lord Siva hair before reaching us, as the magical grace which is Water.
After living here for nearly 40 years, the Wailua river in high spate is still a breath-taking awesome sight. Countless gallons of water and all manner of organic debris rush along with a great power… on the way to the Pacific, just like the myriad of souls are rolling on and on toward their inevitable destiny in the ocean of Satchidananda.
Sun One, Feb. 16, 2015Understanding keys to the mind and transformation. Kriya, the yoga of action, comprised of tapas, svadhyaya and Ishvara pranayama. Living in the soul nature; attenuating the kleshas. Detaching from the world. Giving up attractions and aversions, limitations, clinging to life, wanting to be finite and ignorant. Ignorance is thrown off when we stop looking outside. Warming up to the idea of being omnipresent and all knowing.
