Greenhouse Gardens

Enjoy some of the newest delights coming from the new greenhouse

Self Sufficiency

The monastery is trained and equipped to do most work ourselves. As a cloistered community we are always managing to learn more and increase the monastery's capacity, efficiency and effectiveness. Lord Ganesha has asked for our penuriousness and we joyfully oblige. Recently the Siddhidata Kulam has done just that with old tanks and equipment lying around.

The photos show an old 330 gallon tank that often transports many different liquids to and from the mainland--oils, gasolines and even syrups--to large companies. The monks have taken one for recycle and turned it into our largest watering vessel yet.

The trailor underneath the tank has also been refurbished and strengthened to handle the load, and fitted with a small pump to automate the work.

A New Calf is Born

Satguru Bodhinatha, Shanmuganathaswami and Natyam Mayuranatha just returned from a two week visit to the East coast. The day they arrived, July 20, 2017, our new calf, Kali, was born.

A Look Into Iraivan Day

Each month the mathavasi of Kauai Aadheenam get together and perform a group outreach sadhana called Iraivan Day. The other 3 weekends of the month is Siddhidata day where we all work outside together. However on Iraivan day we work inside on everything Iraivan Temple related. Here is a quick look at what we have been doing for decades.

Our New Noni Washer in Action

After months of toiling and research, Acharya Arumuganathaswami was ready to test out his recently-crafted barrell washer. Our method of cleaning the freshly harvested fruit heretofore was entirely manual. While effective, it isn't entirely the most efficient. Automating some of that process will aid in the overall production.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
