Beautiful Hawaiian flowers brighten up the pathway leading to the Kadavul Temple. These Guzmanias were a gift from the owner of a giant nursery on the Big Island, wanting to share his abundance with the monastery. Thanks, David!
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.
