Visitors from Los Altos Hills, California were all very surprised (as so many visitors have been in the past) that there is a beautiful all hand-carved white granite Siva temple here on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
After attending the morning puja in the Kadavul Temple, our visitors then toured the Iraivan Temple. Here Tara, Sushila, and Jasu Patel, and Many and Bhanu Soma pose with a local resident visitor in front of the sacred Iraivan Temple.
For our "Great Departure" we prefer to be at home in a religious, uplifting environment, in a clear minded high state of consciousness, having resolved all differences and fulfilled all obligations. There is nothing to fear: "Death is a blissful, light filled transition." We then get settled in the inner worlds with like-minded people of similar religious beliefs.
