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.
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.
