April 22nd we were visited by the graduating class of 1957 from Kauai High School. Many of them still reside on the island, yet most had never been to the Hindu Temple. They enjoyed experiencing the peace of the Temple grounds, were very interested in the plants and asked about the Buddhist -- Hindu connection. Many fondly remembered dining at the restaurant that was part of "Tropical Inn" back in the 60s. As with many visitors, they were enthralled with the beauty of the intricate carvings of Iraivan Temple and the magnificence of this project coming up on their island home.

The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
