What do you get when you combine 7 cups of brown rice, 40 sheets of Nori, a slew of fresh vegetables and a group of hungry monks? Lots and lots of Sushi, that's what. Recently one of our monks has been rolling a festive variety of vegetarian sushi, a delicious, fresh and healthy meal thoroughly enjoyed by all. If you're in the Sushi making spirit, it's a pretty simple but beautiful way to eat. All you need is a big pack of Nori (seaweed) some cooked, short grain, brown rice (with rice vinegar added) and as many fresh veggies as you can muster. These rolls include home-made tofu, ripe Kauai avocados, carrot, green onions, tomato, bell peppers, sprouts, celery, cucumber and sesame seeds, and of course, wasabi!
Photographer Lakshmi Grace Phoenix has been spending the last few months gradually photographing the Aadheenam grounds for an upcoming Virtual Tour. As part of that work, she recently took these lovely photographs of the Bronze Statues that will be part of the Iraivan Temple Carver's Memorial. These are some timely images, as Sadasivanathaswami will be headed to Loveland, CO in September to meet with all the craftsmen who were part of this incredible creative process. While there he'll be able to give them an idea of how the bronze pieces look in their new lush, tropical home. Aum Namah Sivaya.

A few days ago, the monastery held another tour day for our guests. As of last week, our visitors get the opportunity to visit Iraivan Temple as was done in the not-to-distant past. This is thanks to the completion of much of the heavy landscaping work around the Temple. As usual our guest were reportedly bright and friendly, eager to know more about this special place.
