Sun Five

The monks are all very focused on their work as usual. Today was tour day and we had many guests.

News from Paris

Brahmachari Vel Mahalingum who has never seen snow before in his life and was amazed to feel how cold it was in France, writes us today with this picture:

Aum Sri Ganesha


Prostrations to the holy feet of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami

Aum Namah Shivaya Yoginatha Swami

Thank U for your mail

I am leaving Paris for Mauritius tomorrow. We will keep in touch.
In two or three years I’ll be back on Task Force on Kauai.

Today I have been at the Ganesha Temple.
I sent you a photo with the mail.
I have passed great time in Paris.
Now it’s the end of my trip which began with all of you in the monastery with great moments.

Thank you very much for everything.

Tour Day, Rain and Rainbow Blessings

Finally after weeks of brilliant sunshine a gentle rain was falling as our guests filed into the Banyan Mandapam.

A spider’s web glistens and all the plants seemed to stretch to catch the precious mist.

Even the Banyan bark was rich red with moisture after almost two months with no rain.

As the guests walk out to Nani Kaua falls a double rainbow arches overhead.

Timing is good as we reach Iraivan to a bright sky above.

This timeless view now greets our guests as they mount the foundation and peer over the rope of the entrance.

Even the cactus garden seemed to enjoy the brief rain.

Finally on our last stop the clouds return and give a gentle blessing to all our guests. Many from cold states remarked that Kauai rain is warm & wonderful. This was a very thoughtful group with many, many questions!

The light rain brought some remarkable rainbows that arched right over the temple.

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