Innersearch Begins

Yesterday evening the monks went to the “Innersearch Dharmasala” otherwise known on Kauai as the Kauai Beach Resort Hotel, where all the innersearchers are lodging and having many of their meals.

We had our opening welcome session with devotees coming forward to Garland Bodhinatha.

The innersearch staff meets and talk with participants.

Bodhinatha tells the story of how the first innersearch to Kauai ended with the purchase of the property in the Wailua Homesteads and how Gurudeva’s vision for a monastery has manifested from that first innersearch.

He gave a brief introduction to his study program which will be a bit different, comprising a deep philosophical journey through Vedanta and Siddhanta.

At the evening orientation dinner, we honored two birthday girls: Shanti Momtaz and Devi Marks. They each received a beautiful art poster gift.

Study guides were passed earlier and everyone is peeking at them after dinner.

Senthilnathaswami, our lead organizer for this innersearch, briefs the group on the next day’s events.

Kailash Dakshinamurthy who has always done a marvelous job on past innersearches, coordinating traveling and hotel lodgings, gives all the innersearchers some important points regarding their stay at the hotel.
