Our monks have completed their week, just as you are beginning yours! We're now entering our two days of retreat. Please enjoy this photo of Kauai Aadheenam's afternoon sun as we say goodbye for a few days.
"Hinduism is ultimately about experiencing things yourself. Understanding another person's wisdom does not make one wise." Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami
For those that enjoy making edible things.
As you well know, several of our monks have been making some artisanal eats lately. It's rare that we think to photograph our daily diet, which consist of veggie-full Indian foods that are equally as beautiful these items, but still, we thought you'd enjoy these. Just know that this isn't all we eat. So we don't want to see anyone adjusting their diet to include 90% bread.
And remember: "The food of the soul is silence. If we don't practice silence, we are starving ourselves." - Dada J.P. Vaswani
Here are a few photos of our recent public tours. Every day the monastery seems to receive hundreds of visitors. These lucky few are the ones that signed up for our weekly tour which heads out to see Iraivan Temple. A big thanks to our local Wailua Mission members who are our wonderful tour guides.
