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.
"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."
