A neighborhood kumu (hula instructor) and island religious chief, Puna Dawson, introduced six Brazilian tribals to Kauai for a shared religious journey. Since she knew Gurudeva so effectively, she requested if the tribals might go to the monastery, and we couldn’t say no.

A few of you’ll keep in mind that Gurudeva was flown to Rio de Janiero in 1997 for a Convention on Human Survival. There he briefly met some tribals (see images within the slideshow).

These profoundly Earth-connected women and men had been a delight to be with, asking many unusually deep questions on Siva and the internal worlds. They had been moved by the simplicity of the monks’ guhas, admiring the austerity and naturalness of life in our personal little jungle. It was straightforward to really feel a bond with them. They walked by the Sacred Gardens, heard Pravinkumar chant in Sanskrit in entrance of Mahalingesvara, ate recent oranges from our timber and extra.

They’re from a tribe known as the Yawanawa, identified for his or her wealthy cultural heritage and deep religious reference to the Amazon rainforest. They observe conventional rituals, protect their ancestral data, and actively interact in environmental conservation efforts to guard their sacred lands from deforestation and exterior threats.
