November 2016 News Video

Our November 2016 news video covers events from October, 2016, including five brother monks from the BAPS Swaminarayan fellowship visiting the monastery; our satguru’s jayanthi celebrations and Satguru Sivaya Subramuniya’s Mahasamadhi observances.

Chitra Puja

The monks gathered around this morning to worship Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami in Kadavul Temple. The early morning rituals are a delight for the monks, it gives them a chance to divine the divine. Our normal meditation is put on hold for one day while the monks take pause and give thanks to our founder. Thank you Gurudeva.


Pumpkins have been out of season for some time here at the aadheenam, but recently one of our pumpkin patches has begun producing some big ones! These are Mauritius Pumpkins and are soft and sweet, perfect for a sweet and savory curry. Because of there massive size, one pumpkin can make up to four dishes or more. It's always nice to see (and taste) the success of our Siddhidatta Kulam monk's efforts in the growing of our fresh organic foods. Jai Ganesha!

Recent Tour Days

Here are a few photos of some of our recent tour groups to visit the monastery. Each week our Wailua Mission members graciously give a guided tour to a large group of guests. After an introduction, the group is taken through our gardens to visit Iraivan Temple. Aum Namah Sivaya
