Last phase brought some very special guests to the Aadheenam. Traveling all the way from the Island of Mauritius, Kulapati Sivakumaren & Kulamata Kavita with their children (from left to right) Dipa, Jayendra & Basanti. They are very involved in supporting the Spiritual Park in Mauritius. Basanti and Dipa love to come to Kauai for a break and work in the mini mela here at Kauai Aadheenam. Kulapati Deva Seyon hosted them.
The Mardemootoos are traveling with their dear friends from Malaysia, Dato Vijay Eswaran and his wife Umayal.
Dato and Umayal are major contributors to the building of Iraivan Temple and have supported the monks in many ways over the years. They also have a beautiful home on Kauai overlooking the valley, mountains and ocean.
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
