Paban, Sagarika and Anoushka Sarma came from Fort Collins, Colorado to Kauai for their first time just to see Iraivan Temple on the advice from their friend. He told them, “You must go to see this Temple”. He knew about it from finding it on the internet, but had not yet been here. They were so happy he did!
When Anoushka was asked, “What was your most favorite of everything your have seen?” Her answer, “Iraivan Temple”. Thank you all and come back again soon.

Become an accomplished human being; soar into the fourth dimension. Artists experience mountaintop consciousness. Having their source in humble devotion to the Lord, Saiva cultural arts: singing, drama, dance, playing musical instruments and creative skills strengthen concentration and are a form of worship. Religious art is an expression of the soul nature, bringing the beauty of the within into manifestation.
How Can We Be Strong Saivite Hindus?
Gurudeva: "The time has come for Hindus of all races, all nations, of all cultures, of all sects to stand up and let the peoples of the world know of the great religion of which they are one of the staunch adherents." The first way of learning religion is to memorize its tenants. The challenge of living with Siva means bringing religion into the home, into the family, into our interactions with all other people. Kshama-forbearance and patience. Everything we experience we set in motion. Everything is just the next thing to do. Treat everyone in a friendly and inspiring way. Learn our religion and then live by it.
