Our Siddhidata Kulam has done a marvelous and thorough job on the stream the flows through the Aadheenam. Being build right on the edge of the cliffs we call the “pali” that forms the valley of the Wailua River, it is important that we secure the land 50 to 100 feet back from the edge from erosion.
The Siddhidata Kulam is ensuring that all the water stays in the channel and the soil beneath stays put!

"Adjust yourself to the realization that you are a divine being, a self-effulgent, radiant being of light."
Jyoti is the Sanskrit word for inner light. To bestow on devotees terms that were more specific, Gurudeva developed the Shum Language of Meditation. In Shum the word for the light that lights up the mind is balikana. During Shum meditation there is an indrawing of forces to realize balikana, a moon-like glow, leading to iftye a deeper kind of inner light which, in turn, leads to milinaka, a sustained iftye which doesn't go away and can be sustained after we've finished our meditation.
