Yoginathaswami adopted a new enterprise maintenance software system severals ago for his Siddhidata Kulam team. On this visit to Toronto he had the opportunity to meet the people behind this great tool.
“Monday morning we when to a Toronto based software firm--Maintenance Assistant. Our Siddhidata Kulam upgraded its Aadheenam computerized maintenance management to this Cloud based maintenance software about two years ago. The software is used to schedule maintenance and routines to keep up the entire facility properly maintained. It was Gurudeva wish and direction in 1998 that the Siddhidata Kulam maintain the Aadheenam facilities with scheduled routine and a preventive maintenance program. Since then we have tried several different software frameworks, including a homemade application. We found Maintenance Assistant couple years ago and now it has become an indespensable part of our aadheenam maintenance program.
Above is the team (CEO and software engineers) that is behind the software. We are very fortunate to pick this software as it is backed by very reliable support! We had a great discussion and an extremely productive meeting.

The main graphic user interface after the login page. The database is accessible with any mobile device that has a web browser. We have couple iPads in the SK which we use for executing the tasks generated--hence we are pretty much paperless!
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.
