Tour day today… and so many people! The monks want to thank our local ladies for hosting everyone. Kulamata Isani Alahan writes:
“What a beautiful day for a tour! Mt. Waialeale was in full view the entire morning. Many local guests joined us today and about a fourth were returning to visit again.”

Guests receive a souvenir sample of the red and white granite stone and fill out donation envelops. We explained that Iraivan is built by donations from around the world.

Religion is the working together of the beings in the three worlds. The first way we actually experience something of a divine nature, the power and energy in a temple, is our sensitized feeling nature. The Saivite beings in the inner world, Deities, saints, sages, devas, guide and govern, help and protect, shower forth blessings and inspirations to the members of our religious family. All worship Siva.
