Message from Satguru
 
December was a busy month for visitors. Due to school vacations and the year-end holidays, more visitors come during the last two weeks of December than at any other time of the year. Kadavul Temple was filled with devotees throughout most mornings from 9am to noon. The festival for December was Ardra Darshana, also called Tiruvembavai. It is the major annual festival to Lord Nataraja in South India, celebrated on an especially grand scale in Chidambaram. In Kadavul Temple , offerings included the water from 120 coconuts, 108 gallons of milk, pots of yogurt, 50 pounds of honey, juices, herbs, a bushel of bilva leaves, and more. After the abhishekam, when the curtain closed, the Nataraja bronze was bedecked with hundreds of flowers and elaborate garlands flown in from the mainland. The weekend Zoom satsangs took up the new topic of “Introduction to Hinduism,” a three-satsang series comprised of suggested points for presenting Hinduism to groups. We are grateful to our global family of temple builders for your continued generous support in these challenging times. General contributions for December totaled $311,551, which is more than 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
 
A devotee who can command his mind to be instantly creative, and be consistently successful, has acquired a conscious control of the use of the subsuperconscious state of mind. This is because the subconscious mind—made of odic force, a sticky-like substance that absorbs impressions, holds impressions and files them (not always, however, in an organized way)—has been understood, dissolved and brought in line with the cosmic forces through living a religious life. In this pure condition, the devotee’s attempts to direct his own mental forces are quite naturally successful. Unobstructed, the superconscious forces flow into the life of the devotee, and creativity is in abundance. Once the first breakthrough has been made, we find that these brilliant rays from the cosmic mind—which we also call Satchidananda, the mind of God Siva, the Gods and your immortal soul—penetrate the sticky-like substance of the subconscious, reorganizing and purifying it. The next time you feel physically, mentally or emotionally fatigued, use your willpower to command access to the cosmic energies that exist deep inside of you. Do not allow the body or mind to fall into lethargic, depressed states. Feel the life forces stirring, flowing out to invigorate every cell of your being.

Iraivan Temple Progress
 
 
Stacks of granite tiles ready to ship to Kauai
 
The rose colored granite floor tile has been ordered from China for the 6,600-square-foot passage surrounding the temple and Nandi Mandapam. It will arrive in a few months in three 20-foot shipping containers. Bronze grates, with a floral pattern, were created for the drain openings along the base of the perimeter wall. A prototype sample was sent to us for approval. ¶Holly Young was commissioned to create a gold-plated bronze lotus to enshrine the golden yantra of Iraivan Temple on the rear wall of the main sanctum. It is a 16-petalled Vishuddha Chakra design, 18 inches in diameter, with a 6-inch square frame in the middle for the yantra to be installed. The central square of the yantra contains the mantra Sivayanama, which invokes the element akasha. The yantra was gifted to Satguru in 2004 by Sri Tiruchiswami Maharaj, founder and preceptor of the Sri Kailash Ashram in Bengaluru, who was one of Iraivan Temple’s “guardian angel” benefactors in India.
 
A Year-End Thank You!
 
 
Thanks to everyone for your 2021 donations to the Iraivan Temple project, the Digital Dharma Drive and the various funds of Hindu Heritage Endowment which support multiple projects here on Kauai and internationally. Our DDD goal was $75,000 and we reached $113,000. We really appreciate your generous support of our work to protect, preserve and promote Hindu Dharma.
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami's Activities
 
 
 
Satguru continued his weekly upadeshas in Kadavul Temple on the inspired teachings of Sivaya Subramuniyaswami as found in his book Merging with Siva. Satguru elaborated on one of Gurudeva’s earliest talks: “The Power of Affirmation,” given in 1958 at the Sutter Street Temple in San Francisco. See Kauai's Hindu Monastery YouTube channel. Satguru has been holding Zoom Satsangs every weekend since March 2020, live presentations that include devotional singing, discussions & testimonies by participants. You are invited to attend.

Publications and Other Activities
 
Three times a year we welcome a new season by changing the color of our flag. Here Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami hoists the flag welcoming the moksha ritau
 
 
The second edition (October-November-December 2021) of our Hindi language digital edition of Hinduism Today has been added to our website (See it here). The Hindi language edition is produced by the enthusiastic team at Sweet Communication in Orissa. ¶In December we received the ninth painting from Suresh Muthukulam in Kerala which will illustrate Satguru’s edition of the Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras coming out in 2022. (Note the first image of this newsletter) Suresh is doing ten paintings in all. ¶Our team of seven youth writers, age 12 to 18, are busy writing articles for the next edition of the magazine, including a youthful view of Hindu marriage in America. As bonafied youth journalists, they receive a lifetime subscription to the magazine. (Payment for the articles they write may be the first check they have received in this life!) Also in the works for the magazine is a wonderful photo-spread and story of the Himalayan Siva temples of Uttarakand­—most made from beautifully carved wood. The unusual aspect of these temples is that the Deity and priests move from one location to another on a regular basis. ¶In farm news we shipped 1,000 gallons of noni juice to South Korea and bottled another 500 gallons for sale locally and on Amazon. Noni powder and noni soap are also being produced. Our high tunnel greenhouses are now abundantly producing Hanalei pumpkins, ash gourd and Tigress Zucchini, all of which the monks pollinate by hand.
 
The Energy Currents Within Us
 
 
 
 
 
Here we juxtapose the art from A. Manivel with the granite bas-relief carved from it. (top to bottom ) The kundalini serpent power rises in the yogi; the sushumna current, shown here for illustration purposes outside the body, but intertwined around the spine; the pingala or masculine current on the right side of the body and flowing up; the ida or feminine current on the left side and flowing down
 
In the middle of pillar 22 on the west side of Iraivan Temple are four panels depicting the major forces within the human body: kundalini, sushumna, pingala and ida. Illustrated at top right is kundalini, literally, “she who is coiled” or “serpent power.” It is the primordial cosmic energy in every individual which lies coiled like a serpent at the base of the spine and eventually, through the practice of yoga, rises up the sushumna nadi. As it rises, the kundalini awakens each successive cha­kra. Nirvikalpa sama­dhi, enlightenment, comes as it pierces through the door of Brahman at the core of the saha­srara chakra and enters. Kundalini Shakti then returns to rest in any one of the seven cha­kras. Sivasayujya, union, is complete when the kundalini arrives back in the saha­srara and remains coiled in this crown cha­kra. Such attainment comes through years of intense training under the close supervision of the guru.
In Merging with Siva, Gurudeva offers this description: “The three main nadis, Ida and pingala and sushumna, [are] psychic nerve currents through which prana flows from the central source, Siva. Ida and pingala intertwine the spinal column (represented in the panels outside the body, for sake of illustration). They begin at the muladhara chakra, cross at the manipura and the vishuddha chakras and meet at the sahasrara. Ida nadi, pink in color and feminine in nature, is the channel of physical-emotional energy. It flows downward, ending on the left side of the body. Pingala nadi, blue in color and masculine in nature, is the channel of intellectual-mental energy. It flows upward, ending on the right side of the body. Sushumna, the major nerve current, pale yellow in color, passes through the spinal column from the muladhara chakra at the base to the sahasrara at the crown of the head. It is the channel of kundalini.”
In Cognizantability, Gurudeva’s seminal work on how the mind works, he writes: “The ida and pingala currents, through raja yoga practice, begin a circular flow around the sushumna, the pingala flowing up and the ida flowing down, creating an electronic force field strong enough to stabilize the sushumna, to sustain the power of cosmic fire as the kundalini uncoils and rises from the muladhara chakra to its ajna chakra destination. The seals are broken, irreparably broken, as consciousness journeys up the spine within the sushumna tube” (aphorism 60).
Gurudeva speaks about harmonizing these energies in chapter 38 of Merging with Siva: “When we chant the mantra Aum, and do it correctly, ... we are deliberatelly moving awareness out of the muladhara and svadhishthana chakras, deliberately harmonizing all the forces of the instinct and physical body, and of the ida and the pingala currents.
 
Publication Endowments
You Can Help Produce & Distribute Hinduism Today
 

 
Gurudeva founded Hinduism Today on January 5, 1979. He later gave this description of its founding: “It was during a [1978] world tour through Singapore, Malaysia, Mauritius, Reunion, Africa, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Europe and other countries that I realized Hinduism had no global voice and no network of communication. The Hindus in Durban had no idea what was happening with Hindus in Colombo. Those in London had no connection with Hindus in Canada. Thus, I was divinely directed by inner orders from our Yogaswami Kailasa Parampara, by my satguru in this life, to fulfill the crying need to create an international network that would interconnect all Hindus into one invincible front.”
 
 
 
Most Hindu publications are entirely devoted to the activities, philosophy and line of gurus of the organization publishing it. Hinduism Today is different. Only rarely do you see an article mentioning us. Rather, the magazine strives to put forward religious leaders of all Hindu sects equally, in acknowledgement of their special role in the future of Sanatana Dharma.
January 2022 marks the forty-third year of publication by the monks of Kauai’s Hindu monastery. It is, in fact, the primary form of public service of the monks. Gurudeva gave this explanation: “Hinduism Today is a public service of our monastic community to strengthen all Hindu traditions and to uplift and inform followers of dharma everywhere. Every Hindu order has its public service, be it priest training gurukulams, hospitals, eye clinics, orphanages, schools or feeding centers.” A few of the basic policies of the magazine are: to show both sides of every story and let the readers make up their minds; to bring into the consciousness of Hindus and onlookers the glories of this most ancient religion on the planet; to support tradition and its maturity into contemporary times. Being strictly nonpolitical is another policy. Further, we seek to give a voice to cultural, artistic and spiritual leaders as well as to the common woman, man and youth. Above all, we foster Hindu solidarity as a unity in diversity among all sects and lineages. 
Hinduism Today is experiencing the same major trend in magazine readership as other periodicals, which is that more and more readers are preferring the free digital edition to the paid printed edition. In the case of Hinduism Today, this has increased our readership but at the same time reduced our income. To compensate, we urge our dedicated readers to donate toward the magazine’s production and distribution costs. If you would like to directly help in the monks’ efforts to produce and distribute Hinduism Today magazine, you can do so by donating to the Hinduism Today Fund at donate.himalayanacademy.com/ht.php.
There are also opportunities to donate to various magazine endowments. Learn about the Hinduism Today Production Fund endowment at https://www.hheonline.org/productionfund. The Hinduism Complimentary Subscription Fund is at https://www.hheonline.org/funds/fund_59.html. The Hinduism Today Lifetime Subscription Fund is at https://www.hheonline.org/funds/fund_04.html.
These endowments allow the monastery to use your donation as an investment and draw on the grant income over time. This is a way to donate and see your impact last into perpetuity.

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.
