Great, beautiful, inspired! Congratulations to the artist and to the monks who planned it. It´s like “art noveau harmonizes with hindu art”! Nevertheless, would there be a way to hide the modern locker?
When I saw the beautiful gate for the first time, the bottom “gold color” metal piece depicting the water was not there on the right side door, and I was not happy because there is no “visual symmetry.” Now, it is there and I am really happy. One thing that I learned from this: Kauai Hindu Monastery is Sivaloka on earth, so everything is perfect there, I have to have patience and see things evolve.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
