Gurudeva tells us he sees us as shining souls and that we can penetrate his picture and see him also as a soul form. Gurudeva tells us how we can become strong, gain control, and he speaks of love.
On our beautiful Garden Island of Kauai, at Kauai Aadheenam, it is Friday, the 4th of September. We greet you. We love you.
We want to let you know what we are doing today. Today, 25 or 30 of the leaders of our island, business, political, social, cultural and some spiritual, are coming to Kauai Aadheenam. Some have been here many times, others just a few and some have never come to see our beautiful lands and meet us. They are all coming together on a special day. Interesting! We are into an eclipse and the eclipse is bringing us many good things. It brought a Swami yesterday. A very famous producer from Hollywood also came, who wishes to be anonymous. It is also bringing these most wonderful people, our friends who are the government on the island of Kauai.
We have a meeting called 'Vision Kauai', which myself and 2 Swamis are a part of. We have been meeting every month for a year and now, every 2 months. We have a new vision going, working for 20 years, a visionary program to guide the people of this Island, forward .
The Mayor, the former Mayor, the Head of the Kauai Council, the Planning Department, the General Plan - all of them are working together to create a new utopia, here on this garden island. These leaders look at the Iraivan Temple as one of the parts, a vital part, among others of this new utopia. They are the visionaries. They will be having lunch with us, eating in the traditional Tamil Hindu way on banana leaves, the monks chanting Sanskrit slokas, singing Tamil songs. It is going to be a wonderful event and it is happening today. We will let you know more about it, on what is happening at Kauai Aadheenam. Tune in.Tonight is your time.
Many are wondering how I see you through cyberspace. Well, I see you as a soul, shining. So many souls out there, shining brightly. All souls look pretty much the same. We have to attest to the wisdom of Lord Ganesa, who made Himself look quite different from all the other souls, so He would be quite recognizable. You are there, shining. But you are seeing me in the physical form. Try to penetrate that picture that you are looking at and see me in the soul form. Then, we will really be communicating.
Well, have a wonderful day today and tomorrow too, until we meet again on Saturday, Kauai, Hawaiian Standard Time.
Until we meet again, be strong. What makes you strong? Does anger make you strong? No. Anger is a sign of weakness. Does jealousy make you strong? No. Jealousy is a sign of weakness, embedded with anger that is in it.
No, love makes you strong. Love is from the higher chakras. The heart chakra, the throat chakra. Where is that? What is love? Forgiveness, letting everyone be the way they are. What is love? Guidance, helping each one from one step to another, through patience. Patience is the saving force of love. One of the boons that love gives, is giving you patience. To be impatient, is to be without love. To be impatient, is to be without love. To have someone or some child get on your nerves is to be without love.
Love for the physical body is sensual. You whip children, hit them, beat them. That is sensual. Love of the soul is true love. There is a continuity there that cannot be broken. There is a continuity there that cannot be tampered with, adulterated, tarnished, blemished in any way. That is the real you.
You are a soul living in a physical body, controlling all of your faculties, controlling your body, your appetite, your mind, your instinctive mind, most especially your emotions. You can do it. Try, for 24 hours, until we meet again.
See you at Kauai Aadheenam, next time you tune in. Do make it soon.
Aum Namasivaya. We all love you here at the Kauai Aadheenam.
