We received this beautiful letter from the Virashaiva guru from Mysore who recently visited the monastery:
October 8, 2011
We are delighted to write about our visit to your Monastery few weeks ago. It was one of best moments of our brief stay in the US. The idyllic location of the Monastery combined with the true exponents of Saivite philosophy, thousands of miles away from its origin, is not merely surprising but exhilarating that such a monastery exists in reality in its pristine originality. We were indeed overwhelmed at your hospitality. The Monastery is functioning exceedingly well under your guidance. The unusual spiritual comradeship is not to be seen elsewhere as it is found in Kauai's Hindu Monastery. The dedication with which the Hinduism is practiced is worth emulating.
We once again express our deep sense of appreciation for maintaining the monastery exceptionally well. Our regards to all the Swamijis and others of the Monastery.
With best wishes, Yours in the service of God,
Jagadguru Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji
Jagadguru Sri Veerasimasana Mahasamsthana Math Suttur Srikshetra

There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
