The Kauai Branch of the Association of Family and Community Education visited today. They are part of a world wide organization which originally was a Home Economics group for women.It is a branch of the UH Tropical Agricultural Human Recourses. The organization was designed to help women learn cooking, sewing, crafts and other home skills. Now most members are elderly and widows. They have a group outing once a year for educational and cultural enrichment. Some are quite elderly took a ride out to Iraivan on the people mover. The members invited some of their family and neighbors along to learn about Kauia's Hindu Temple and to see the beautiful gardens.
These five friends joined the tour. They live on Kauai, but work during the week and couldn't make it to one of the weekday tours. They were all very grateful to have an opportunity to enjoy a tour.
A temple helps you be a more peaceful person, live more deeply inside and into our soul nature. Harmony in the home leads to greater tolerance in the community. The emanation of darshan from the aadheenam creates an inner vibration, radiates out, uplifts those who are connected to the monastery. And, their karmas go more smoothly.
