September 2020 Update – Monastery Temporarily Closed to Public

September 2020 update — Kauai’s Hindu Monastery is required to follow COVID-19 related restrictions issued by the State of Hawaii and the County of Kauai that apply to all places of worship. These restrictions are independent of the restrictions on travel to Hawaii. The addition of a COVID-19 test within 72 hours option for travelers will not impact the restrictions on places of worship. These restrictions on places of worship require those inside a place of worship to wear a mask, maintain social distancing of six feet of physical separation and not touch any objects others have touched such as a container of holy ash. Observing these restrictions plus some peoples’ concern of not becoming infected by other worshipers in our opinion seriously lessens the potentially uplifting nature of attending a puja, meeting with Satguru and touring the grounds. With this in mind, we are planning to keep Kauai’s Hindu Monastery closed until these restrictions are ended

    Aum. Lord Siva protect from Covid-19 all Monks at Kauai’s Hindu Monastery. Lord Siva, and by your immense grace, wherever possible, mitigate the suffering from sickness of any and all persons around the world who may be affected by this new virus. After, this event, may recovery be complete and life return to normal for all. May health return to the sick and economic well being to those who may suffer loss. Let us pray . Aum

    Glad to hear of your decision to close the monastery to the public. It will take time to overcome this pandemic. Your digital presence and your openness to your church members is more than anyone could ask for. We all pray for a quick return to a healthier world.

    Jai Jai Shree Maha Ganesh!

    Thank you Satguru for closing the Monastery for the safety of our beloved Swamis and Monks! This is a wake up call for us all to learn to protect one another and rise up to the challenge! A challenge for the Scientists/Doctors and a stronger message to all the spiritual leaders of the world! For the odd one who may have known of this challenge, it is his/her utmost duty to pray even harder, perhaps even turning a new leaf in that individual’s spiritual path! May the spread of the virus diminish and we all recover from this deadly virus and recover economically, financially, emotionally and physically. With such a spread of this deadly virus, it is also the duty of the world leaders to continuously educate their people honestly and sincerely about diet, good hygiene, proper nutrition and above all caring for one another!

    A Hindu takes the long view of knowing that reincarnation will give the chance to complete the unfinished work that needs to be done!

    I’m in the UK…………I’ve got it. A very prudent move by Satguru and one which we should all seek to emulate to protect the already sick and vulnerable. I was meticulous with my protocol and still contracted this nasty virus, thankfully so far it is relatively mild, just a persistent fever. But I take solace in that this too is all Siva and his cosmic dance. Aum Namasivaya
