It was lovely grand tour day with over 100 divine souls eager to see the marvel of Iraivan and the breath taking botanical gardens at Kauai Aadheenam.
It seems the economic slow down has had little effect on our visitor traffic. Here is everyone just after arrival gathering at the lookout over the Wailua River.
The tour host today was Kulamata Amala Seyon. Here she is explaining the beliefs of Saivism at the Siva Vinadhara mound
Guests were enthralled and listened intently to the beliefs and followed with profound questions including “What are the denominations of Hinduism?”
Our guests shown slowly wandering from the ponds near Rishi Valley all the way to the temple taking in the awe inspiring beauty.
Because of the work on the roof, guests must look from a distance. Here on the West side of the temple,they are learning about the unique carvings and the in depth thought that goes into each piece of stone.
Coming around to the East side. Here they learn about the sacred Rudraksha trees and seeds.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
