For several Days now Brahmachari Vel has been focused on rust proofing the scaffolding of Iraivan Temple.
Vel brings the scaffolding back to its former brilliant yellow color. This process occurs every few years due to the heavy rain and moisture in Kauai which cause most metal to rust. Thank you Vel for your push to finish this vital project.

"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
