Anil and Jyothi Kondapi, daughters Meera and Manu, and Jyothi’s parents are here from Arizona on pilgrimage. They attend satsangs with Chellappa and Banu Deva. Jyothi is interested to become a sishya and is reading the Master Course trilogy to learn what it’s all about.
The Kondapi family visited last year but missed doing abhishekam to the outdoor Narmada Lingam, so they were determined to do so this time. Since the water is still not flowing normally in our ponds, they had an adventure to collect water from a pond further downstream
with all the water collected, they’re ready to do abhishekam while chanting some mantras.
Devotion to Parasiva
Enjoying a cooling foot dip in the Wailua River afterwards.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
