Kauai Aadheenam Brimming with Summer Guests

Summer brings 1000's to Kauai and many have their sights set on visiting Kauai's Hindu monastery. With school vacation, it is a time when families can travel together so we are seeing many moms and dads with their children.

Meeting with the Mauritius Minister of Education

This morning as we were having our final events with the Aloha breakfast Kulapati Manon Mardemootoo brought the Minister of Education to us. Back in 1989 this is the man who helped Gurudeva to get a special government recognition for Saiva Siddhanta Church as a nonprofit institution in Mauritius.

We thanked him for helping the spiritual park in recent years and then gave him a mala and also a thumb drive with the Hindu history movie on it.

He said this is just the kind of educational tool that they need in the schools here and he can have it shown in every school room every year for kids five years old to 18 years old.

This is just one of the many positive ripples that have been created by the Innersearch ship and will be reporting on others in the future.

Media Studio Progress – Floor Done! Time to Move In!

Last week Acharya Kumarnathaswami with the help of Kulapati Durvasa Alahan completed the intricate work of installing the new vinyl floor in the media studio. Designed by Sadasivanathaswami... how beautiful it is! Brahmanathaswami was determined to make the move, so he brought in all the table/desk bases in and the table tops so that the innersearch team could come right in and start working when they return tomorrow. And he himself moved in and is fully functional now in the new space.

Monks Visit Murugan Temple in Mauritius

On the day of Guru Purnima, after the morning ceremonies. As the Innersearchers went off with their fifteen local host families for a cultural immersion day and dinner, Bodhinatha and the monks went to a hill side Murugan temple which is celebrating its 150th year. Gurudeva climbed these same 366 stone steps in 1983 and named a child that year who became the nation's foremost Sivacharya. The following day was our final full day and everyone felt a little sorrow for that but also talked about saving for the next Innersearch.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
