We recently enjoyed a visit from Gayatri and Shivani Rajan and Shivani's husband-to-be Daniel. They are all from California and the Rajans have long been connected to our global fellowship. Shivani is currently an herbalist and Daniel is a professional coffee roaster. He was pleased to learn of our monks' deep love for this tasty beverage. The three joined the Ganapati Kulam's morning meeting and received many insights into the many digital endeavors that our monks participate in. Afterwards Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami took them on a short tour into our sacred gardens and to Iraivan Temple. Aum Namah Sivaya.
Darshans with Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami never end as pilgrims from all over the world pour in to receive his blessings
While our holiday stream of guests has slowed down a little we are still receiving many friendly faced from around the globe who come for our tour days. Graciously hosted by our Wailua Mission members and by pilgrimaging members such as Jiva and Kanmani, many these recent tour groups have had the joy of visiting Iraivan Temple, a part of the tour which is dependent on construction activity.

This month's news video covers events from December, 2016, including: the monastery's Pancha Ganapati celebrations, along our many holidy vistors; Iraivan Temple's silver naga is getting closer to arrive on Kauai and our Moksha Ritau change that begins a season of deep meditation, intense study and philosophical discussion. High above flies the coral flag, signaling Parashiva, Absolute Reality, beyond time, form and space. Moksha Ritau is a time of appreciation, of gratitude for all that life has given, and a time of honoring elders, those in the sannyasa stage of life.
