What Happened Today at the Monastery?
Bodhinatha read from today’s Master Course Lesson and offered insights on the subconsious mind. He explained how all past happenings were registered in the subconscious mind. Those that are not correctly understood and resolved, such as disputes between husband and wife, will repeatedly surface to the conscious mind. He emphasized Gurudeva’s point about resolving disputes before going to sleep at night as a way to keep the subsconscious clear.

Today’s Pilgrims and Visitors
Chinna Chinnakaruppan, an Engineer, and his wife, Dr. Nachu Chinnakaruppan, a pediatrician, arrived for the morning puja. Originally from Kothamangalam, S. India, they now reside in New Jersey with their two young children, Abwani (age 4) and Arun (age 2).
Following a tour of the Iraivan Temple they were then blessed to receive the Darshan of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.

(Center) Originally from Nallur, Sri Lanka, Sangarapillai Mahendran and his wife Amirthavathy both originally met Gurudeva in 1989. Sangarapillai’s mother strongly recommended that they pilgrimage to the Kauai Aadheenam -- and so they did. Here all three couples pose with the silpis on the south side of the Iraivan Temple complex.
All of our visitors are happy to say that they have been subscribing to the Aadheenam’s International magazine “Hinduism Today” for many years and find it the most informative and inspiring magazine on Hinduism available today anywhere.
