Beautiful spring day brought many bright souls on our public tour day to see Iraivan Temple.
Linnea, Christina and Maja came all the way from Malmo Sweden. They are came specifically to Kauai to enjoy nature, yoga and to celebrate Christina’s defeat of cancer.
This is Aparna Sarma (on the right), with her mother. Bodhinatha just signed her copy of “What is Hinduism”. She just graduated from Medical School and fell in love with Iraivan. She has pledged to send her very first paycheck to help finish the temple. She is just starting her residency in Neurology in Texas.
This is Chip, Joni, Kyle, Bodhinatha, Joni, Olivia and Evan. Chip and Joni are both psychiatrists from Lafayette, Louisiana.
"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."
