Pradeep Chand is here. He has his own company Hawaiian Pacific Trenching. Pradeep is a master of earth works and is digging a trench for the incoming electrical conduit.
Pradeep can carve the earth to 1/2 inch tolerances!
Yoginathaswami oversees the project. In the back you can see the new service wall in action with panels mounted.
John works for Pradeep. He says “I’m a happy man!”
Why the electrical upgrade you may ask? It’s very simple. The current infrastructure was installed in the ’50’s. Over the past six decades we have added more and more electrical outlets on the monastery side of the incoming electrical “pipe.” And although there is plenty of power on the outside to meet the needs on the inside we have to upgrade a whole need incoming line to meet the demands.
Pradeep is concentrated…no time to pose for the camera…
"There are three kinds of karma: the karma of all deeds done in our past lives; the karmas we bring into this birth to experience; and the karmas we are making by our actions now."
Karma is an automatic system of divine justice. Karma is self-created destiny; a consequence or fruit of action, karmaphala. By accepting not reacting, performing karma yoga, karma can be softened, mitigated. Seeking the grace of God and guru in the right spirit, the mind focused on the Deity and open to blessings, receiving the intense grace of the Deity in a powerful pilgrimage can actually eliminate karma.
