The gates of Kauai’s Hindu Monastery opened wide for over fifty beautiful souls this week on pulic tour day to look, hear and feel the wonders of Saivite Hinduism.
Here pilgrims stand among a royal blue carpet of rudraksha seeds, while hearing about why Saivite Hindus wear and use these sacred seeds.
Kandan gives an inspired demonstration of the ancient art of temple carving. It always amazes the guests how fast and accurate he swings his mallet -- never missing the chisel.
The Felton family from Missouri had a wonderful time. The children found the extensive grounds a wonderland of Koi, flowers and rudraksha seeds!
After the tour a guest sits in a secluded corner to absorb all that surrounds her.
