Message from Satguru
In March, after almost a full year of being closed to visitors, Kadavul Hindu Temple’s 9am Siva puja  was opened again to devotees who register ahead of time via email. Group size is limited to fifty percent of normal capacity. Though the temple is open, the monastery’s grounds remain closed to visitors. Our Maha Sivaratri homa and abhishekam was held on March 10th.  Only the monks attended the full ceremony, but it was live-streamed. The monthly Ardra abhishekam to Nataraja was held on March 21, two Chitra pujas were held for Gurudeva, March 2 and 29. On the 24th, Paramaguru Yogaswami’s Maha Samadhi was honored. In my Sun One morning talks, a new series was begun on the 54 Shum-Tyeif mambashum (meditation maps). The online satsangs were held each weekend.  Material from  “Raising Children as Good Hindus” was presented, along with a second topic which explored the differences between being religious and being spiritual.  A new topic was begun of “Climbing the Ladder of Consciousness.”  It will end up as a future Publisher’s Desk. The material begins in this way:  “The core aspect of all religions is for human beings to pursue their natural inclinations of wealth and love carefully guided by virtue. In some religions, this is the sum total of religious practice. However, in Hinduism there is an important fourth pursuit which in Sanskrit is named moksha or liberation.” General contributions for March totaled  $49,465, which is less than our minimum monthly goal of $70,000. Special project contributions totaled an additional $1,200. We are grateful to our global family of temple builders for your continued and generous support. Om Namasivaya.

Founder of Kauai’s Hindu Monastery, Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami (Gurudeva), 1927–2001
From Gurudeva’s Teachings
The world is the bountiful creation of a benevolent God, who means for us to live positively in it, facing karma and fulfilling dharma. We must not despise or fear the world. Life is meant to be lived joyously. The world is the place where our destiny is shaped, our desires fulfilled and our soul matured. In the world, we grow from ignorance into wisdom, from darkness into light and from a consciousness of death to immortality. The whole world is an ashrama in which all are doing sadhana. We must love the world, which is God’s creation. Those who despise, hate and fear the world do not understand the intrinsic goodness of all. The world is a glorious place, not to be feared. It is a gracious gift from Siva Himself, a playground for His children in which to interrelate young souls with the old—the young experiencing their karma while the old hold firmly to their dharma. The young grow; the old know. Not fearing the world does not give us permission to become immersed in worldliness. To the contrary, it means remaining affectionately detached, like a drop of water on a lotus leaf, being in the world but not of it, walking in the rain without getting wet. The Vedas warn, “Behold the universe in the glory of God: and all that lives and moves on Earth. Leaving the transient, find joy in the Eternal. Set not your heart on another’s possession.”

COVID Update
We are pleased to announce that, after almost a full year, Kadavul Hindu Temple’s 9am Siva puja is again open to devotees. Please note that there is a capacity restriction and a reservation is required. Email: puja@hindu.org to request a reservation. Though the temple is open, the grounds remain closed.
Iraivan Temple Progress
During March, the silpis have been re-grouting the joints of the sunshade eavestones to make the roof waterproof. (See page 4) Experiments that the silpis have been conducting to remove the stains (from the red earth of the carving site in Bengaluru and other causes) on the pillars and roof beams using a mild acid wash and pressure washing have proved successful! The alternative, removing the stains with chisels, was a bleak prospect that would have involved months of work. Recently our masonry team has completed the rock work on the north side of the foundation. Meanwhile, we are consulting with the Kauai Tile Work company regarding the installation of the red granite tiles in the outer portions of the temple floor.
Satguru’s Activities
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami presides at the homa during Maha Sivaratri
On the evening of Mahasivaratri 2021, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami gave a discourse about the nature of Self Realization. Here is a high-resolution video of that talk: 
bit.ly/Sivaratri2021BodhinathaTalk. Every week during the 2020 lockdown Satguru presented a webinar, twice a week, with his close devotees using the Zoom platform. One was hosted by devotees in Northern California and the other by devotees in Singapore. Twenty of the webinars were recorded and are now on our Kauai’s Hindu Monastery YouTube channel. We invite you to watch. Tapping into Intuition, Reincarnation: Journey to Liberation, Reprograming the Subconscious Mind, and a nine-part series on Raising Children as Good Hindus are some of the videos of interest.
Publications and Other Activities
For nearly three years a small team in Moscow has been producing Hinduism Today in the Russian language, an amazing achievement
Hinduism Today’s April-May-June issue is now available online. You can also download our free Hinduism Today app and get the entire magazine in a mobile-friendly format for your device here. The Hinduism Today production swamis are just now wrapping up the work on the July-August-September issue. This issue will contain articles from our new team of teenage writers. Shaina Grover, age 16, writes about her uncle’s Hindu wedding because of the Covid pandemic. There were eight family members at the wedding and 200 guests on Zoom. Sanjeevani Dedge, age 12, writes about the Maharashtrian tradition of building a mud fort on Divali in honor of the king Shivaji. Ridvij Holay, age 15, writes about John Adams, a founding father and the second president of the US, and his defense of Hinduism against Christian theological criticism.
Farm News
The monastery recently acquired two food dehydrators for processing noni. We use the machines during sunny days when they can fully run off solar power. It takes 20 pounds of noni fruit to make two pounds of noni powder, which will be a new product, sold in bulk and in capsules. We also used the dryer to make our first batch of “sun-dried” tomatoes.
Dealing with Calcite Deposits

Two joints cleaned and resealed with waterproof grout
Months after the roof and sunshade of Iraivan temple were completed (14 years ago), we noticed the development of white deposits on the underside of the roof along the joints in the stone. These were most prominent under the projecting sunshade, with unsightly stalactites several inches long forming in many places. There were also areas of wide deposits a sixteenth to a eighth of an inch thick along vertical and horizontal surfaces below the roof.
The cause, we learned, was water leaching calcium hydroxide out of the mortar between the stones, then reacting with carbon dioxide in the air to form calcium carbonate—the rock-hard white substance accumulating on the stone surfaces. We’ve seen it in temples in Sri Lanka. It is even more problematic on Kauai, where it rains almost daily. It is a common problem with any concrete structure and with tile floors or stone constructions using cement mortar. Calcite deposits are a major issue in the mining and chemical industries. A similar process gives rise to the huge stalactites and stalagmites found in limestone caves.
Our primary approach is to stop water coming through the grout joints and forming the deposits. The silpis have been at work on this for several months, chiseling into each mortar joint at roof level and filling it with waterproof cement.
For removing calcite deposits that have built up over the years, our research has yielded a much better method than simply chiseling by hand, which is time consuming and requires refinishing the surface afterwards. Our new method employs mild, food grade phosphoric acid. It’s a three step process: 1) use chisels to scratch or rough up the surface and removing heavy buildup, 2) apply the acid solution, 3) do final cleaning with a pressure washer. With this breakthrough, chisel use has been reduced by 60 percent. As an added boon, the acid wash also removes deep stains and mold, a worrisome problem that has lingered for years. This system will allow periodic cleaning of any surfaces, bringing them back to pristine condition. Recently the monks cleaned the entire floor with the acid wash, and the result is wonderful. 
Estate Planning
Demystifying the Various Types of Donations
By Akhila Satish
The benevolent man considers himself poor only when he is unable to render his accustomed duty to humanity.” Tirukural 219
You may know you want to donate to a charity, but the particulars of donation may be daunting. There are many ways to donate, that can range from a stock donation to simply writing a check. However, if you are seeking alternate options, several exist that may fit well with your current financial state and giving plans.
If you are building up your savings toward a philanthropic goal or have money set aside for philanthropy, but are still thinking over how to allocate your funds between organizations, a donor-advised fund may be a great fit for you. A donor advised fund is a financial vehicle that allows you to set aside money today for donation tomorrow. While you decide on allocations and a timeline, the money can grow, tax-free, in an investment account. There are many donor-advised funds available, including ones run by Bank of America, JP Morgan and Fidelity. This can be a great option for younger individuals who know they want to contribute but are working toward a more sizable donation over time
Five ways to give to charities represented here by five elephants
If you are seventy or older, you may want to explore the possibility of a qualified charitable donation (also referred to as an IRA charitable rollover). A qualified charitable donation (QCD) offers you a way to donate your RMD (required minimum distribution) from your retirement account directly to a charity. If you have alternate sources of retirement income, this can be a great way to fulfill your RMD without dealing with complicated tax implications. This is a strong option for individuals who are making donation decisions year by year.
If you are in the process of estate planning, you may consider including a charity in your will. This is an incredibly popular choice for planned giving because of its simplicity—all that is needed is to include a single sentence in your will that states the amount of money, the name of charity and any intended purpose of the donation. If you have no specific purpose, but intend to support the charity generally, you can do that as well. It is an easy way to donate to a charity, but unlike a donor-advised fund, requires you to know ahead of time the amount you anticipate giving to a particular charity.
As an alternative, you may consider a real estate donation. While these can be more challenging logistically and legally, they do provide an effective opportunity to give generously. Real estate is often a significant portion of an individual’s net worth, far outpacing stocks, bonds or any other kind of financial holdings. As a result, a real estate donation can offer tremendous value for a charity.
If you are reassessing your financial investments, you may consider seizing the opportunity to transfer to a charity stocks that have appreciated in value. Stock transfers allow individuals to potentially benefit from reduced taxes and portfolio reallocation. You can learn more about stock transfers by reading our article detailing the benefits of stock transfers at www.hheonline.org/gifts-of-stock.shtml. This may be a good option for individuals who want to give immediately, and have financial assets in stocks and investments rather than cash or real estate.
There are many ways to successfully donate to a charity­—including ways for individuals who are still in the process of making critical choices about their donations. The most important step in charitable giving is to begin the journey, from wherever you are, with whatever you have.

Here Is My Contribution to
Help Finish Iraivan Temple
Sponsor the Entry Steps or Perimeter Wall
Entrance Steps: The nine entrance steps are 30 feet wide and comprise 64 carved granite stones in all—shown above during installation. Sponsorship for each intricate stone is $2,500. On either side are two massive handrails, intricately carved in the form of a yalli, a creature made of several animal species said to protect the temple. This grand stairway creates a magnificent entry to Iraivan Temple.
Perimeter Wall:The perimeter wall is 40 inches tall, 24 inches thick and 475 feet long. It comprises 50 short pillars and 49 panels (the long section between the pillars). Each pillar and panel pair required 430 man-days to carve, even with the massive granite slabs being sawn to size by machine. Of the 49 panels, 35 have an ornate border (as shown in the photo at left) which will display (etched on bronze plates) verses from scripture and information about the philosophy and history of the temple. Sponsorship for one pillar section is $15,000, and $30,000 for one panel section.
