Message from Satguru
Gurudeva’s annual Mahasamadhi Chitra Puja homa and ahbishekam (the 20th since his Great Departure) was live-streamed on November 3. It was preceded by three days of morning pada pujas to build the inner vibration. Skanda Shashthi, held this year on November 9, is always a powerful event as our Lord Murugan shrine becomes vibrantly alive on that day. Many devotees attended via the live-streaming on YouTube. Despite the continued limited occupancy restrictions, attendance at Kadavul Hindu Temple was particularly strong during the last week in November due to the US Thanksgiving holiday season. The monthly Ardra abhishekam to Lord Nataraja also occurred during that period. My four weekend Zoom online satsangs focused on Gurudeva’s unique contributions to the practice of Saiva Siddhanta. We are grateful to our global family of temple builders for your continued generous support in these challenging times. General contributions for November totaled $159,762, which is more than our minimum monthly goal of $70,000. Om Namasivaya.

Founder of Kauai's Hindu Monastery, Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami (Gurudeva), 1927–2001
From Gurudeva's Teachings
The intrinsic and real nature of all beings is their soul, which is goodness. The world, too, is God’s flawless creation. All is in perfect balance. There are changes, and they may appear evil, but there is no intrinsic evil. The soul radiates love, is a child of God going through its evolutionary process of growing up into the image and likeness of the Lord. Goodness and mercy, compassion and caring are the intrinsic, inherent or indwelling nature of the soul. Wisdom and pure knowledge, happiness and joy are the intrinsic nature of the soul. Can we believe the soul is anything but goodness itself, purity and all the refined qualities found within superconsciousness? When God is everywhere, how can there be a place for evil? The soul is constantly one with God in its ever-present Satchidananda state at every point in its evolution. How, then, arises the concept of evil and suffering? Anava, karma and maya, the play toys of the soul, are the source of this seeming suffering. Like a child, we play with the toys of anava in the playground of maya, fall and are bruised by karma, then run to our loving Lord for solace and release into spiritual maturity.

Iraivan Temple Progress

In November our neighbor, Bobby Soares and his Garden Isle Roofing team worked for a week to waterproof the roof of Iraivan Temple, while a coppersmith installed new flashing around the perimeter. ¶Great progress was made on the entry steps that lead up from the Wailua River to Iraivan Temple. The first steps have been completed, with the rest scheduled in December. Among the magical features of this staircase are the three black granite elephants placed at the sides, which appear to be climbing the stairs along with pilgrims. ¶Construction of a new pilgrims’ path was begun in Rishi Valley, involving the placement of many tons of quarry rock to create a walkway to keep pilgrims’ feet dry. ¶We completed the construction of a new moss rock bell tower along the San Marga path—a gift from the team that made the Iraivan lava rock plinth. It heralds the entry to what Gurudeva called the Third World section of San Marga. Next time you visit, remember to strike this bell for the devas to hear.
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami’s Activities
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami continued his weekly upadesha in Kadavul Temple on the inspired teachings of Sivaya Subramuniyaswami as found in his book Merging with Siva. Satguru elaborated on two of Gurudeva’s earliest talks: “Life the Great Experience,” given in 1957 and “The Power of Affirmation,” given in 1958. These inspired messages, delivered at the Sutter Street Temple in San Francisco, capture the essence of yoga and Saiva Siddhanta. See Satguru’s presentations on our Kauai’s Hindu Monastery YouTube channel.

Living With Siva in Russian
The amazingly gifted and motivated team in Moscow (who also publish our Hinduism Today magazine in Russian) has done it again. In the past three years they have put Dancing with Siva and Merging with Siva into the Russian language, and now they’ve added Living with Siva, thus completing the trilogy. Not only do they translate and publish the works of our Gurudeva, but they do it with the same quality control of the Himalayan Academy English editions. We are also pleased to announce the release of our Hindi language Digital Edition of Hinduism Today! This first release is a translation of the July/August/September 2021 issue. ¶During the evening of Krittika nakshatra in November, Satguru, the monks and local devotees observed Krittika Dipam. This is a time when God Siva is celebrated as an infinite pillar of light, usually by lighting a large lamp or bonfire to represent the divine and all permeating light of Parashakti. Several monks set up a pillar of dried palm fronds, imbued with large amounts of camphor and ghee. Upon everyone’s arrival at sunset, an arati was performed and the fronds were lit in a brightly burning blaze of billowing darshan. ¶For many years visitors to the monastery’s Kadavul Temple have been greeted by a fantastically carved wooden Ganesha and Muruga flanking the entrance. Over the years tropical sun and rain have faded the paint on both sculptures. We recently hired two talented island painters to return them to their original vibrancy. Over the course of many afternoons we watched the transformation as bright base layers of paint were added, followed by layers of golden highlights. ¶Visitors to the monastery are always amazed by the rudraksha mala that are made with beads from our own trees. A short video was made by Velika Nataraj showing how the beads are prepared. See it here.
Our January 2022 Issue Released
Featured: Mauritius youth on Hinduism
Educational Insight: 14 Common Questions About Hinduism
Hinduism Today’s latest issue has gone to press and is now available online free of charge at You can also download our free Hinduism Today app and get the entire magazine in a mobile-friendly format for your device at
The subtitle of Publisher’s Desk by Satguru Bodhinatha Vey­lanswami says it all: “The Upanishads are clear, man is not man, man is God. But actually encountering that amazing reality takes work.” He goes on to describe finding God in the temple, seeking Divinity within oneself and seeing God everywhere. Our scriptural excerpt from the Chandogya Upanishad expands upon the same theme, “The Self is all this world.”
This issue’s feature story is “Mauritius Youth Reflect on Hinduism,” the third in our intermittent series on youth. We began with India in January, 2019, then Nepal’s youth in the April, 2021, issue. Even though all are based on the same set of questions with personal interviews, the results are different for each country. The youth of Mauritius, in particular, have a fond engagement with religion. Our Educational Insight this quarter is an update of “14 Questions People Ask About Hinduism,” one of our most popular articles ever. We publish it every decade or so, tweaking and improving it a bit each time.
Among this issue’s dynamic stories, the one on the cover, “Temple management in the Agamas,” is most unusual. This has been a contentious issue in India where temples in all states are managed by the state government, and not always well. In her book on temple management, Dr. Deepa Duraiswamy explains how the principles laid down in the Agamic scriptures can and should inform and guide the governing of temples today.
Then there is the resource produced by the Malaysia Hindu Sangam called “Hindu Religion, Common Faith and Practices” which does an excellent job presenting the beliefs and customs common to all Hindu sects. It is intended to serve as a teaching tool in schools and temple classes. We also have two contributions from our Young Writers’ program this issue, one on the celebration of Ganesha Chaturthi in California and the other on gender stereotypes in Hinduism. There’s an article on the 1995 attacks by Christian evangelist Pat Robertson on Hinduism with an adroit rejoinder by the late Ram Swarup, an influential Hindu intellectual.

Monastic Endowments
You Can Help Feed the Monks
The Native Americans had a powerful way of considering the future in every decision they made, stating that “In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.” While it may be challenging to con tinuously consider future generations, there are opportunities we have to focus our energies on creating a world that will benefit and enrich our descendents. This kind of deliberation may begin with taking a thoughtful approach to estate planning. There are many options to craft estate planning in a way that ensures a long-term impact.
Lunch is enjoyed each day in the Courtyard. There are several ways to help support the Hindu monks on Kauai.
First, you may consider a bequest to family and loved ones that is set aside for a specific purpose in the future, such as the next generation's education. This can be a way to have an impact into the future, supporting a loved one's dream even after your passing.
Second, you may think of ways to help a charitable cause you care deeply about. Whether this charity is a museum, a foundation for art, a spiritual enterprise, or an academic institution, this kind of donation can have multiple benefits beyond financial impacts.
A focus on charity can transform the heavy feelings around estate planning into a lighter emotion as you think about causes that inspire you. Your ability to help through estate planning may be greater than your ability to help in your lifetime; according to the IRS, a typical bequest may be almost three times larger than the total amount that a person has donated in their lifetime. Additionally, as a donor, you may have the opportunity to engage more with the charity, allowing you to meet like-minded individuals and infusing your life with meaning.
Many charities, including the Hindu Heritage Endowment, offer targeted ways to give. At HHE, you can choose the exact cause you are donating for; causes range from the Orphanage Endowment to funds specifically focused on the temple gardens, or feeding the monks. This kind of targeted, planned donation allows you to choose exactly how you want your legacy to unfold.
However, it is important to remember that even as we plan for legacies after our life, we should take the time to live our legacies on earth. We can choose to live by the values we hold most dear, sharing those values with our families and communities. We can choose to live with passion, enthusiasm and gratitude. We can share and pass down our stories through journaling; we can choose to spend our time generously with the people we love and serve the causes we care about. The story of a life well-lived, a life of purpose, integrity and love, is an inspiring, incalculably precious legacy that will guide future generations.
To be remembered kindly beyond our life is an aspiration many of us have. Through careful planning and introspection, this aspiration becomes a reality within our grasp. For tips on leaving a legacy for your family check out this web page at:
This article talks about leaving a legacy through a combination of money, objects and memories that matter to those around you.

Here Is My Contribution to
Help Finish Iraivan Temple
Sponsor Stone Chains & Flooring Stones
Stone Chains: Among the “wonderments” of Iraivan Temple are the stone chains, each carved from a single solid block of granite. In all, 24 such chains, three feet long, will adorn the spaces. Twelve will hang from the corners of the Nandi Mandapam and 12 within the main temple. Asked why these marvelous artifacts are created, the master builder said with a smile, “To show off the extraordinary skill and artistry of the carvers.” Of course, they also add an ornate and charming visual masterpiece at the corners, and provoke a sense of awe in pilgrims who encounter them for the first time. The process, which takes around 350 man hours per chain, is so difficult that few have been made in the past hundred years, we've been told. Sponsorship is $10,000 per chain.
Rose Granite Flooring Stones: One of the last remaining large projects for Iraivan Temple is the installation of one-inch thick rose granite flooring stones (sample of the reddish stone below) in the second prakaram, the 6,500 square-foot area surrounding the roofed area of the temple. The diagram at left is a detailed map of the project prepared for the tile supplier and the professional installers The colors indicate the various tile sizes. Sponsorship is $1,800 for each 25-square-foot section.
