Sweet Visit with Hawaiian Halau

Puna Dawson, whose full first name is Keikilaniwahinealiiopuna, has had a close relationship with Gurudeva and the monastery for many decades. She is one of Hawaii's most distinguished kumus and travels extensively to share Hawaiian culture, dance, and spirit. Last week, she visited the monastery with over 60 members of her Honolulu group, many of whom had never been there before. Sadasivanathaswami welcomed them on behalf of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, received their traditional gifts, and guided them through the gardens. At the Iraivan Temple, they were inspired to offer a divine oli, a chant in the Hawaiian language. Their powerful, unified voices resonated against the granite walls, creating a profound experience, especially for Pravinkumar, who had never heard a Hawaiian chant delivered with such potency. They toured the sacred gardens, rang the Bell of Dharma, and left with wide smiles of gratitude.
