Visitors from Los Altos Hills, California were all very surprised (as so many visitors have been in the past) that there is a beautiful all hand-carved white granite Siva temple here on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
After attending the morning puja in the Kadavul Temple, our visitors then toured the Iraivan Temple. Here Tara, Sushila, and Jasu Patel, and Many and Bhanu Soma pose with a local resident visitor in front of the sacred Iraivan Temple.
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.
