Summer Visitors Galore!

These families are from Los Angeles and Boston. Some of them know our good friend Janahan Balasingam who has performed special pujas for us in the past. The young lady in the middle just had her arangetram last week and took dance lessons from Janahan’s wife.

This is just one small group of over 100 visitors who flowed through the property today and it was not even a tour day!

Yesterday's Tour

With the end of Sadhu Paksha the gates of Kauai’s Hindu Monastery open wide for our first Public Tour in three weeks. Guests are always so grateful and seem to sense how special is this land they tread.

Another group of divine souls who now know about Iraivan Temple, a little about our monks and our Parampara.

This sacred lotus says it all!

Extra help in the mini mela on tour days! Valli Alahan from the Kauai Mission with Dipanjali Mardemootoo from Mauritius are helping Isani Alahan.

Tour day is noticeably less potent when Bodhinatha is traveling and not in His chair when we return for the signing of books.

Word of the Day

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
