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.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
