With the end of Sadhu Paksha the gates of Kauai’s Hindu Monastery open wide for our first Public Tour in three weeks. Guests are always so grateful and seem to sense how special is this land they tread.
Another group of divine souls who now know about Iraivan Temple, a little about our monks and our Parampara.
This sacred lotus says it all!
Extra help in the mini mela on tour days! Valli Alahan from the Kauai Mission with Dipanjali Mardemootoo from Mauritius are helping Isani Alahan.
Tour day is noticeably less potent when Bodhinatha is traveling and not in His chair when we return for the signing of books.
"Hinduism is recognized as the most compassionate, mystical and enlightened faith on the planet." Is India's ancient faith Hinduism a religion or a way of life? All religions are ways of life but there are ways of life that don't involve God and worship. Religion guides our daily life. We encourage deeper religious practices such as the humility developed by selfless service, especially in a temple or ashram, scriptural study, worship in the home shrine and temple, pilgrimage and coming into a sense of oneness with God which meditation can provide.
