Darshan with Bodhinatha

This is Dharma Senathiraja (center) with her brother and mother on left and daughter Yaamini on right. They are visiting from Toronto for the first time.


Kumar Sinnadurai family (wife not in photo) is visiting Kauai for the first time from Edmonton, Canada. His parents recently visited with our sishyas Jai and Ganga Murugan. Kumar and his wife were the first marriage to be solemnized at the Mahaganapati Temple in Edmonton. Kumar recalls our late Gurudeva visiting his home when he was only age 16.

Interfaith Visitors

Another photo from the other day when we hosted local Kauai residents in an interfaith gathering here at the monastery

Monks Training Session

The whole monastery gathered yesterday afternoon as Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami gave everyone a tour of our Google Apps web space.

Our goal was to educate everyone today in the use of Google Calendar and Google docs which will help everyone in the coordination of our Sivathondu in serving the mission.

It was very useful and also great fun as the monks do no often gather as a one group like this.

Devi and Skanda Visit Our Woodshop, Harvest Chocolate and Plant a Tree

Devi and Skanda were taken on a tour of the shop by Acharya Kumarnathaswami and given two Formosa Koa bowls he made from wood grown on our own land. Then they found some chocolate trees and fruits in the forest and finally planted a native species Hawaiian sandalwood tree together with their brother.
