With so much misinformation, even disinformation on Hinduism abounding, it is deeply important to have accurate online resources on Hinduism–as many as possible. Congratulations and thanks are due to the monks of Kauai's Hindu Monastery. Not only do they maintain and continually expand an astonishing compilation of news, information and insight, it's presented in cutting edge media: from ink on paper to digital print to numerous audio/visual media, all with world-class graphics and writing: at once fresh, lively, profound and thought-provoking. Oh, and gorgeous. The venerable monks present their own cherished Saivism in full, as well as an abundance of material on general Hinduism; history, current events and issues, health, scriptures, arts and culture, temples, and best of all, practical observations on spiritual life skills, yoga and sadhana by a realized satguru. This is the most comprehensive, insightful, well researched and accurate, and visually delightful window into the Sanatana Dharma you'll ever find anywhere–digital or analog. And, with our help, it's absolutely free. Jai to the monks of Kauai's Hindu Monastery! We are forever indebted to you.

In many cases this is the only resource for authentic, undiluted dharma. Can you imagine what a lifeline it must be for those too far away from any temple, those without a sangha, or living in countries hostile to Hinduism? I think this is more important to the lives of others than many of us may know.
I agree, Nadikesh. I live in a small town, in the Philippines, and I am the only practicing Hindu here, that I am currently aware of.
My Room Shrine Areas, and the Precious Monastery Websites, are my only links to it all. Externally.
I would also like to add: I thought Gayatri Rajan’s comments were so spot on.
I also thought, what an amazing facility, for clearly articulating the deepest of insights.
Thank you so much for sharing!!!
I really enjoyed reading Mrs. Gayatri Rajans comment. Thank you for that.
I currently live in an area where there are few Hindu resources, so the Kauai Hindu Monastery Website is also, for me, a very valuable resource.
With Love and Appreciation,
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.
