The monks recently observed Hanuman Jayanti. Although celebrated at different times of year in different parts of India, the monastery honored this Great Hero according to Tamil custom. That is to say, on Moola nakshatra during Amavasya (new moon) in the month of Margashirsha, falling in December-January. This year it took place on December 31st in Hawaii.
Gurudeva explained that Lord Hanuman is highly instrumental in bringing Iraivan Temple into the First World from the inner worlds, in bringing the stones from India to Kauai. Gurudeva also had several profound clairvoyant and clairaudient experiences with this great Being. Because of this, we love and honor this Great God who reminds us that true greatness and strength is achieved through mastering humility and selfless service.
