Yesterday Bodhinatha, Shanmuganathswami, Siddhanathaswami and Sadhaka Mayuranatha hosted a pizza lunch with all our Wailua Mission members who are so diligently serving here at Kauai Aadheenam at our Minimela Information center. By some counts the visitor traffic sometimes climbs to 3000 visitors each month. These are not all coming on a single day, but a steady stream of daily traffic, all of whom pass through our Minimela center where they are served by these shining faces and these sishya spend hours behind the counter taking care of everyone’s needs.
Thanks to all these sishya and to all the sishya around world who are performing Sivathondu, sacrificing and tithing time, many hours each week without fail for the mission of the Kailasa Paramapara. Week after week, month after month, year after year. These are the strong souls we know we can depend on! And we know there a many more than in this picture in our various missions around the world.
Mahalo and Nandri to The Servants of the Servants of Siva!
Jai Ganesa!! I second that!!!.They are truly the best examples of Siva Thondar. Thank you all very much. I learn so much from all of you. May you always have every need met and remain as lovely as you are for all of us, near and far who need you.Aum Shanti Toshadevi
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
