More and more Hindus are fulfilling Gurudeva’s original vision. Instead of dropping in casually having just found us on the island, they made their plans to come to Kauai in advance from home, just to be here at the monastery.
The Siddhidata Kulam shared their news today. They have been organizing all the lumber from the scaffolding that was up for several years around iraivan and is now down. On the future front, the permits to install our new entry way are nearly complete and the stone archway at the beginning of entrance to Kadavul will be going up soon.
Vel Alahan hosted this group. This was just a few of the many visitors we had today.
