Senthilnathaswami and I drove to Mountain View on Wednesday to accept Rolf Schreiber's long-standing invitation to give a Google Tech Talk at their headquarters. Senthilnathaswami had prepared a delightful survey of the monastery's tech and sustainability initiatives, complete with historic photos. Twenty-two attended, including our members, for the hour-long talk and Q&A. Swami and I toggled the narration as we went through the early history of our publishing and typography, the Apple video on our first-ever publishing network, our Macintosh evolution (Gurudeva seated at his early Macs), lumber milling of Kauai trees, Himalayan Acres agricultural work, our veggie garden, iPhones and iPads....you get the idea.
Then a not-planned afternoon visit to ARC in nearby Fremont. ARC is one of America's leading document management companies and its President and CEO, K. Suriyakumar, also a long-time admirer of the monastery's work, had made a generous offer when we visited his home, inviting the monastery to consider using his company's industrial-strength software, especially one called IShipDocs. Software that pushes Gurudeva's mission forward? Free? We accepted and were given a tutorial by their experts. It's a potent tool and when we return to Kauai we will begin implementing it. Such a great gift to make our work, well, work.
Today we fly off to Toronto for the HMEC conference.
Bodhinatha's latest upadesha on the human aura. The human aura is in the astral plane. The human aura has two parts: the outer and inner auras. Clear congestion through a combination of vasana daha tantra and meditation, bringing more spiritual energy into your aura. What you're thinking of always existed before you thought of it. Become more fluid, more detached and move awareness more freely in the mind.
