Long-time devotee and supporter of Kauai’s Hindu Monastery, Dr. Narayana Rao of Illinois, has written an enthusiastic article on our monastery and our work, especially the construction of Iraivan temple. It is in the Telegu language and appeared in the March, 2012 issue of the Telegu Association of North America magazine. It describes how this monastery came to exist in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, who founded it, its mains features and claims to fame. Dr. Rao pilgrimages regularly to the monastery, once bringing 14 members of his family along with him. Click here to get a PDF of the article in its entirety.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
