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.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
