The sacred space at the center of Kauai's stone marvel, Iraivan Hindu Temple, is adorned by a black granite monolith adorned with beautiful carvings. It is on that stone that the Satguru, living embodiment of Siva, will prostrate to Siva himself during the worship. The stone was installed on February 18, 2010 by Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami with the silpis and the monks.

To the Saivite Hindu, all of life is sacred. All of life is religion. Thus, Saivite art is sacred art, Saivite music is devotional music, and the Saivite's business is not only his livelihood, it is his service to man and God.
