Thanks to the Pillaiyar Kulam!

Sun Four today… The Pillaiyar Kulam gave its report. Sannyasin Shanmuganathswami is working on a wide array of projects: guiding the new visitor info center construction; installing new phone boxes; preparing the Hindu Heritage Endowment newsletters; lining up activites for the trip to Mauritius and Malaysia with Bodhinatha in April.

Muruganathaswami manages our mini post office and he recently re-organized everything, threw out ancient postal forms and get everything back in order. Thank you Muruganathaswami!

Yogi Jothinatha attended a phone seminar on advertising sales and he has been sharing all that he learned. His work is a mainstay for Hinduism Today as the advertising revenues keep the magazine afloat.

Yogi Jivanandanatha has been preparing for our annual budget/finance meeting with the stewards. This requires and enormous preparation getting all the number together for review.

We have to thank the Pillaiyar Kulam for all they do, as all this administration is a big weight they carry for the rest of the monks and our entire Saiva Siddhanta Church.

Jai to the Pillaiyar Kulam. Thank you!

Aloha Card Reprint


In the Press shop the last days of production of the April issue of Hinduism Today are still underway. Periodically we print other items on the same sheet as the cover of Hinduism Today as the cost for 4-color printing on quality paper when we do it this way is incredibly low. In the printing business its called a “gang job” where you “gang up” many different items on the same sheet of paper.

We frequently do charity jobs for our local county as it Gurudeva set a pattern for the monastery to contribute to the local community from behind the scenes.

One of these initative’s he started years ago was the “Aloha Card” which has become a key tool for our county tourism marketing of the island of Kauai.


We have printed 100’s of thousands of this little card over the past 15 years and it continues. The Mayor’s office recently ran out and we are doing a reprint.


This card will end up in the hands of people all over the world as it is given out here on Kauai through numerous channels and also distributed as far away as in Tokyo when Kauai representativeS go there to help promote tourism to our little paradise in the middle of the Pacific.

We will be printing about 180,000 of these next month. That should last a while!
