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.

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)
All experiences are good experiences, necessary to get us here. Awareness of aspects of ourselves that are constantly changing is a liberating perception, breaking our chains to mundane areas, detaching from instinctive and intellectual to go into superconscious. The greatest challenge facing youth today is the lack of relating to the devotional side of Hinduism. Daily practice, daily vigil, moves us forward spiritually.
