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
We welcome you to enjoy this short story that took many moons to complete. Large projects at the monastery take much effort and a small village of selfless servants to get it done. Thank you to everyone who has helped and will help in the moons to come.

[Tech note: Apologies for the poor audio on Chapter 7. We had a sound system failure and had to pull the audio from our video camera, but the message is "mission critical."]"Clarifying Multiple Gods and Hindu Denominations" (October 10,2016)
"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."

Back in 2009 Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami wrote an editorial for Hinduism Today magazine which was crafted to be an Introduction to Hinduism, especially for those who know little about our vast faith.
A few seekers in Malaysia loved it, and recently translated it into the Tamil language. We offer that translation today, and invite Tamil speaking CyberCadets to share this with friends. It is a most lucid and cogent summary of Hindu dharma.
