Message from Satguru
Kadavul Hindu Temple’s 9am Siva puja, which continues to require registering ahead of time via email, had high attendance in July. Ardra abhishekam to Nataraja was held on July 8 and the monthly Chitra puja for Gurudeva on July 16. The monastery celebrated Guru Purnima on July 22 with a chariot parade up San Marga to the Svayambhu Lingam where a homa and pada puja were conducted, with a fairly large group attending the outdoor event, including several guests from off island. My Sun One early morning talks continued on the concept of utilizing intuition by presenting Gurudeva’s concept of innerversity, a word Gurudeva coined which indicates turning inward through yoga concentration and meditation to the vast superconscious state of mind, whence knowledge can be unfolded. They also covered the eighth Shum mambashum and Gurudeva’s powerful three-fold vision of Lord Siva that was the catalyst for constructing Iraivan Temple. The Zoom satsangs held in July covered a variety of topics, including “Enduring Happiness.” The main theme is that happiness is already part of our inner self, but we need to learn how to experience it. The monistic or meditative way is to turn within in meditation. The theistic way is to visit the temple and open ourself to the blessings of the Deities. Gurudeva gave a third way: “If you want to attain happiness, make others happy.” General contributions for July totaled $157,398.33, which is more than our minimum monthly goal of $70,000. Special project contributions totaled an additional $79,081. We are grateful to our global family of temple builders for your continued generous support in difficult times. Om Namasivaya.
- Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.
Founder of Kauai’s Hindu Monastery, Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami (Gurudeva), 1927–2001
From Gurudeva’s Teachings
Keep your environment positive, so that the inner feeling is always content. Keep your home shrine or meditation space radiant, so that the inner feeling there is always uplifting. As you advance along the path, the radio mechanism [of your psyche] will become highly tuned, very positive. Being positive, it will register all types of influences. Influences that are distasteful to you will come through as strongly as influences that are really magnificent. You have to learn to shield out the static by finely tuning this mechanism. That is why you strive for mastery of sadhana, mastery of concentration, your ability to hold awareness where you want it, when you want it for as long as you want it, and mastery of your ability to experience kaif», pure awareness aware only of itself, by taking awareness out of the entire context into just being aware. This practice of kaif» is one of the fundamental protectors from psychic or astral invasion, for when you are in that state, great clarity and willpower persist and the lower states are transcended. To attain and sustain kaif» is a simple practice. You pull awareness out of the thought processes. You pull awareness out of the emotion processes. You pull awareness out of the bodily processes, and you’re just completely on that pinnacle of being aware of being aware. That’s so necessary to practice every day, even if you do it for a split second.

COVID Update
At the beginning of August 2021 Kauai county COVID restrictions which limit occupancy in places of worship were still in place. Because of this capacity restriction, a reservation is required to visit and worship at the monastery temple. Email to request a reservation. Though the temple is open, most of the monastery’s grounds remain closed. Please note that during the year-long pandemic lockdown of Kauai the car rental companies sold off their automobiles. There is still a shortage of cars, and thus high rates! In response, enterprising residents of Kauai have taken to advertising on Craigslist the rental of their personal vehicles to visitors.
Iraivan Temple Progress
One of the three chinna gopurams, with a freshly applied yellow undercoat, is ready for 23-karat gold leaf to be applied in August
Through July the silpis continued their work of detail carving and re-grouting the joints between the ceiling stones. They also began polishing the red granite rear wall of the inner sanctum. A metal ornamental piece that runs at a diagonal from the top of the kodimaram flagpole to the underside of the lowest flag section was fabricated and installed. This decorative structure also ensures that the flag pieces stay horizontal. Two hand-carved, stone pots were delivered to the monastery from artists in Bali to reside on either side of Iraivan Temple’s entrance steps. The team of artisans from Gilders Studio in Maryland arrived to apply gold leaf to the temple’s towers. They predict that the work will be finished by mid-August. The monastery benefited from the “Rise to Work” program sponsored by new Kauai residents Mark and Priscilla Zuckerburg. It paid for two full-time workers we hired for three months to care for the monastery grounds and improve the landscaping around Iraivan Temple. See a less-than-a minute video of the temple progress here:

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami’s activities
On the full moon day of July, Guru Purnima, Satguru was drawn on a colorful chariot down the San Marga path by devotees from California and Kauai, and a sunrise Pada Puja was conducted at the Svayambhu Lingam. See his recent webinars: 1) Denominational Nature of Hindu Temple Worship, 2) Hindu Unity, and 3) Integrating Hinduism into Daily Tasks. Satguru presented his July/August/September, 2021, Publisher’s Desk Editorial from Hinduism Today in a YouTube video titled “Now Is a Good Time to Update Your Plans,” stating, “The restrictions imposed by the pandemic can give us time to plan and manifest a positive future for ourselves and our family.” See this at the HinduismTodayVideos Youtube channel.

Alexander Kennedy studies the Yoga Sutras during his first weeks of serving in the monastery
Hinduism Today’s July/August/September issue is now available online. You can download our free Hinduism Today app and get the entire magazine in a mobile-friendly format for your device here. The Ganapati Kulam completed the editorial work on the October/ November/December issue at the beginning of August and sent it off to the printer. During July and into early August, four families (from Boston, Dallas, Phoenix and California) performed karma yoga at the monastery—from gardening and web work, setting up shelves in our new Himalayan Academy Publications room, to Wikipedia editing, publishing research, art design and pricing of Mini Mela items. Alexander Kennedy arrived in early July on our taskforce (karma yoga) program to experience what it’s like to be a monk. Welcome, Alexander!
A New Rendering of Tirumantiram

The black granite statue of Tirumular near Iraivan Temple
Dr. S. Sabharathanam of Chennai is about halfway through his lucid translation of the 3,000+ verses of Saint Tirumular’s Tirumantiram. He has been working on it earnestly (along with other projects) since early 2019. His is the clearest translation to date, conveying the depth of Tirumular’s meditations, as it freely combines his extensive commentary with the root meaning of each verse.
The literal meaning of Tirumantiram is “holy incantation.” It is a vast storehouse of esoteric yogic and tantric knowledge, the Nandinatha Sampradaya’s oldest Tamil scripture, the earliest of the sacred Tirumurai texts.
Containing the mystical essence of raja yoga and siddha yoga, this scripture reveals the fundamental doctrines of the 28 Saiva Siddhanta Agamas, which are the heritage of the ancient Saivism. As the Agamas are now partially lost, the Tirumantiram is a rare repository of the Agamanta (collection of Agamic lore). Its 3,047 four-line verses were, as legend has it, composed in a rather extraordinary way. It is said that Tirumular would meditate for an entire year and only then summarize his experiences in a four-line Tamil verse. He did this for 3,000 years! The allegory is said to mean that 3,000 years of yogic knowledge is distilled in this one book.
The text is organized in nine parts, called tantras, summarized as follows: 1) basic rules of religious morality; 2) Saiva mythological stories, five powers of Siva and three classifications of souls; 3) a raja yoga treatise plus information on other forms of yoga; 4) mantras and tantras; 5) the essential features of Saiva religion: the four forms of Saivism, four stages, unorthodox paths, conduct to be avoided; 6) the Sivaguru, grace, renunciation, sin, penance, jnana, worthy and unworthy persons; 7) siddha yoga, Siva’s grace, mudras, control of ida and pingala, worlds reached by yogis after death, refinements of yoga, the satguru; 8) essential theology: five sheaths, eleven states, three padarthas (Pati-pashu-pasha), 36 tattvas, four states of consciousness, three malas, three gunas, ten karanas, etc.; 9) the fruits of realization, liberation, jnana, Siva’s dances, meeting of the guru. Following are two examples of the verses.

Verse 503: I have never forsaken Him, even when I was an embryo within my mother. I have never deviated from the eternal path of San Marga and I have never considered my body as a hindrance to my progress; with this body given to me by Him, I am always seeking the sacred feet of the immutable Lord. Having delinked myself from all the tattvas, now I have become like an ever-glowing lamp for which there is no need for ghee, lit and kept near the feet of the Lord who has matted locks of hair.

Verse 703: Among the nine trans-empirical locations in which different kinds of yogic experience occur to the sadhaka, the blissful state occurs in the sixth location. In the seventh location, his karmic effects, both good and bad, get nullified. In the eighth location, a kind of inexplicable experience occurs. After such experience, which could last for a short period, he would reach the ninth location, identified with the great space (mahakasha), where he would experience the highest kind of bliss, his mind and prana being in unified state.

Helping Orphaned Children During this Pandemic
“Far sweeter than divine nectar is simple boiled rice stirred by the small hands of one’s own child.” - Tirukkural
One of the often forgotten fundamental truths of life is that no one chooses where they are born, or the circumstances of their birth. Infants and toddlers display the purest and most natural behavior among us; research studies show that they instinctively help others and act in altruistic ways. Children offer us hope for the future and a fresh, inquisitive perspective on the world. As adults, it can be easy to forget or overlook how vulnerable and dependent this precious population is on the kindness and goodness of others.
HHE supports five Hindu orphanages in India, Sri Lanka & Malaysia
However, the COVID-19 pandemic has shed painful light on the sensitivity of children to external global events. In Indonesia, children are now suffering in greater numbers from COVID-19, more than 150 children dying during the week of July 12 alone. In India, as of June 5th, 3,632 children lost both parents to COVID-19 and 26,176 children lost one parent.
In the midst of this global crisis, it can feel overwhelming and hopeless to think of the magnitude of loss and suffering. Channeling that emotion into helpful actions, however, can feel empowering and powerful.
The Hindu Heritage Endowment has a specific fund dedicated to securing the future of children in need. The Hindu Orphanage Endowment is designed to support five children’s centers in Sri Lanka, Malaysia and India, where the goal is to create an environment in which children can experience a sense of family bonding and security. This is an important and meaningful task, requiring teams of caregivers with patience, kindness and humility alongside a steady and impactful stream of resources. Donations directly support the daily needs of children and securing their futures through educational programming. Raising the children’s standard of living has an effect beyond mere comfort—it enhances their self-esteem, maturation and independence.
Making a donation is a fast and simple way to support children in need. However, if you have financial constraints, consider other ways to support this cause by sharing the message on social networks or choosing to support the Hindu Orphanage Endowment during a birthday or social fundraising event. Every quarter, funds are directly transferred from the Orphanage Endowment to bring each fund up to a minimum amount, which currently is $45,000.
One of our main concerns at HHE is to secure the future of children in need. Donations from people from all around the world have helped to set up a series of orphanage endowments that give constant financial and moral support to orphanages in their very difficult work of raising and educating neglected children in the purest Hindu manner and traditions. Five of these children’s centers who depend on HHE are listed below.

• Yogaswami Hindu Girls Home, Sittandy, Sri Lanka
• Manjung Orphanage, Malaysia
• Pazhassi Balamandiram Orphanage, Kerala, India
• Udayan Care, New Delhi, India
• Swami Vipulananta Children’s Home, Sri Lanka

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, 20 such chains, 24 to 32 inches long, will adorn the spaces. Eight will hang from the corners of the Nandi Mandapam and twelve from the main temple sunshade. 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 and provoke a sense of awe in pilgrims who encounter them. 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 $5,000 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.
