Siva Acharya's Last evening before departing Kauai

Left to right Vel Mahalingam, our sweet Karma yogi, the gracious Sundaramurthi Siva Sivacharya and Sadhaka Nilakantha pose for Taka. Sivacharya has been at the monastery for a few days soaking up Siva's perfect peace. He mentioned next visit will be for five days to really enjoy all the monastery has to offer. We thank you Sivacharya for your visit and look forward to seeing you again.

Sivacharya has a sadhana of daily Atmartha puja. He displays his puja articles. A small Siva lingam is placed in the center of the puja tray.

A busy summer

These two lovely families arrived from Cerritos, CA to attend the morning puja and later toured the Iraivan Temple. Hamendra and Rekha Doshi were here with their daughter, Vidhi and are originally from Mumbai. While Suresh and Anju Bansal and their daughter, Nisha are originally from Delhi. Both families felt deeply moved by their experience here and stated that "this was one of the most spiritual places they had ever visited."

Beauty everywhere

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!
