January 2017 News Video

This month's news video covers events from December, 2016, including: the monastery's Pancha Ganapati celebrations, along our many holidy vistors; Iraivan Temple's silver naga is getting closer to arrive on Kauai; landscaping around the temple; progress on the Iraivan temple perimeter wall and our Moksha Ritau change that begins a season of deep meditation, intense study and philosophical discussion. High above flies the coral flag, signaling Parashiva, Absolute Reality, beyond time, form and space. Moksha Ritau is a time of appreciation, of gratitude for all that life has given, and a time of honoring elders, those in the sannyasa stage of life.
