Message from Satguru
January was another quiet month as the island’s strict quarantine kept the number of arriving tourists to a small fraction of the 2019 levels, and the monastery remained closed to visitors. The monthly Chitra puja to Gurudeva was held on January 6, and the monthly Ardra abhishekam to Nataraja was held on the 26th. For Thai Pongal, the silpis conducted a simple puja and sharing of prasadam with the monks at the Iraivan Temple site. The Thai Pusam abhishekam to Lord Murugan was held on January 27. Our Zoom online satsangs were held on all the weekends in January. In Hawaii time the Singapore hosted event is on Saturday at 5pm and the Northern California hosted event is on Sunday at 8am. Talks were primarily based on the concept of karma. The editing was completed on my Publisher’s Desk for the April-May-June 2021 issue of Hinduism Today. The article is entitled “Essential Ingredients for a Powerful Puja.” I presented five ingredients: (1) the temple’s strong connection to the inner worlds; (2) the day is auspicious; (3) the skill, knowledge, purity, devotion and mystical understandings of the presiding priest(s); (4) the devotional actions of attending devotees; (5) offerings of cut fruit, cooked food, water, fragrant flowers and milk.  The article concludes, “When these five ingredients are all present in a puja, that ceremony is definitely going to be a powerful event in which significant blessings come forth from the inner worlds.” General contributions for January totaled  $50,868, which is less than our minimum monthly goal of $70,000. Special project contributions totaled an additional $1,166.  We are grateful to our global family of temple builders for your continued and generous support during difficult times. Om Namasivaya.

From Gurudeva’s Teachings
Appreciation is a beautiful, soulful quality available to everyone in every circumstance—being thankful for life’s little treasures, grateful for the opportunity to begin the day where you are, appreciating the perfect place your karma and God’s grace have brought you to. Appreciation is life-giving. Depreciation without appreciation is heartlessly destructive. Yet, it is the all-too-common way of our times. When something is done that is good, helpful or loving, it is often overlooked, treated as something expected. No acknowledgment is shown, no gratitude expressed. But if a shortcoming is seen, everyone is swift to point it out! ¶The Vedas, the Tirukural and our many other holy texts indicate a better way. The wise ones knew that all people possess freedom of choice and the willpower to use it. Today that freedom is usually used, unwisely, to downgrade others, as well as oneself. Ignorance seems to be almost as all-pervasive as God. We find it everywhere and within every situation. It does not have to be this way. ¶Gratitude is a quality of the soul. It does not depend on how much we possess. Its opposite, ingratitude, is a quality of the external ego. When we abide in soul consciousness, we give thanks for whatever we have, no matter how little or how much. When in ego consciousness, we are never grateful or satisfied, no matter how much we have.

Iraivan Temple Progress
Adaikalam works near the ceiling on special scaffolding
During January, the silpis worked on the tops of the temple pillars, removing calcite buildup and stains while also repairing grout joints. After several weeks break, our lava-rock wall team is back on the job, with additional masons from the Big Island. The capstones of the wall have been set in place along a small portion of the eastern wall giving us an example of how the completed job will look. Our swamis worked out the final design specifications for the 35 bronze plaques that will be attached to the perimeter wall (all sponsored by generous donors more than a decade ago!). These plaques, measuring 14 by 47 inches, will tell the story of the temple’s founding and construction, the monastery and our teachings. Several will contain sacred verses from the Vedas, Agamas, Thirumantiram and Thirumurai as well as quotes from Yogaswami and Chellappaswami. The famous Big Island sculptress Holly Young has been commissioned to create bas reliefs to illustrate most plaques.
Satguru’s Activities
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylaswami has been giving a weekly talk on the concept of awareness from the yogic perspective, quoting from Gurudeva’s Shum teachings. You can enjoy six such talks on our Kauai’s Hindu Monastery YouTube channel. These are especially good for those who have a daily meditation session.

A New Forum for Budding Hindu Authors
Our attempt to solicit more youth voices for Hinduism Today magazine led to an enthusiastic response from middle- and high-school students. Four insightful articles in the upcoming April-May-June 2021 edition were written by them. Our magazine is looking to enlist four more writers in the 11 to 18 age group to join the team. We hope to include a ‘gamer’ among this group with the writing skills to review (from the perspective of a Hindu youth) video games such as “Raji: An Ancient Epic,” which is renowned for its beautiful graphics. If you know someone in this age group who would like to add “magazine intern” to their college application resume, please email our Managing Editor. Email: ar@hindu.org
Farm News
The 1-1/2 acre addition to the Noni orchard that was planted last June is doing well, with the small trees already producing fruit. The ambitious goal, set in 2004, of planting 100 acres of hardwood trees (as a future source of income for the monastery) was met in December. The last field was planted in koa, subsidized by two US government grants. The first hardwood planting (Honduran Mahogany) will be ready for harvest in 2034.
Karma: The Bow & Arrow
Karma is one of the natural laws of the mind, just as gravity is a law of matter. As gravity was created by God to bring order to the physical world, karma was created as a divine system of justice that is self-governing and infinitely fair. It automatically creates the appropriate future experience in response to the current action. Karma simply means “action” or “cause and effect.” When something happens to us that is apparently unfortunate or unjust, it is not God punishing us. It is the result of our own past actions. In the middle of pillar eleven of Iraivan Temple, on the temple’s northwest corner, are four archery images conveying a visual understanding of four stages of the karmic cycle: sanchita, prarabdha, kriyamana and fried karmas as an analogy to an archer, the bow and the arrows.

As long as we have karmas to resolve, we will be reborn on Earth. Thus, individuals who are intent upon spiritual progress take seriously the creation and resolution of karma. Not only do they strive to act wisely in the present, they perform religious practices to rid themselves of karmas that would normally only manifest in future lives. This is a profound practice especially performed by sagacious sannyasins.
North Face: Sanchita karma, “accumulated action,” is the sum of an individual’s karma from this and past lives, indicated here by the arrows kept in the archer’s quiver.
East Face: Prarabdha karma, “action that has been unleashed or aroused,” are those past sanchita karmas brought forward to be experienced in a particular life. The archer is reaching into her quiver to remove a karmic arrow she has brought into this life to express.
South Face: Kriyamana karmas, “actions being made,” are those created in the present life by one’s thoughts, words and actions. The archer here is unleashing an arrow, representing an action that will bring a karmic impact to him in the future.
West Face: The single broken arrow represents karmas that have been resolved, broken or “fried” as some texts prefer. The karma may remain but cannot sprout, as a fried seed will never germinate. Through penance, sadhana and intense tapas under the direction of the guru, it is possible to fry or destroy sanchita karmas that have yet to manifest. Gurudeva has explained that such karmas may actually be experienced, perhaps with great intensity, but on an internal level, without physical manifestation. Fried karmas will never again return to us, just as the broken arrow cannot fly.
Estate Planning
An Advance Health Care Directive Saves Family Grief
Sanjit Sharma had slipped into a coma from which, his doctors said, he would not awaken. His grieving family, however, had one great consolation: Sanjit had put down in writing what he wanted done in just this circumstance.
Rather than debating if and when to take their father/grandfather off life support—remember the Terri Schiavo case contentiously argued in the US Congress?—they referred his doctor to Sanjit’s advance health care directive. 
“I already have that in my files,” the doctor told them. “Sanjit gave us a copy when he was in the hospital five years ago.” The family breathed a communal sigh of relief. They still had many issues to face, but Sanjit had lifted from their shoulders this difficult decision. Besides saving them from conflict at a time of great stress, he also saved his estate from the enormous expense of high-tech but, in his case, futile medical treatment.
A judge presides over a contentious conflict involving a loved one’s end-of-life issues. Lacking an advance health care directive, this family is forced to resolve its issues in a court of law.
The advance health care directive, also known as a durable power of attorney for health care, is a legal document, similar to a living will, that lets your physician, family and friends know your health care preferences, regarding the types of special treatment you want or don’t want at the end of life, your desire for diagnostic testing, surgical procedures, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and organ donation.
The Hindu belief in the rebirth and reincarnation of souls transforms death from a calamity to a natural process, a means by which the soul sheds one body and continues its evolution in another. But our technical ability to keep patients alive and the natural inclination to prolong the life of a loved one can create conflict among family members who are keeping vigil by the bedside.  By completing an advance health care directive, you, like Sanjit, can avoid having your family make crucial medical decisions for you at a time of emotional turmoil, and assure that your wishes are fulfilled.
Most US states have a form you can fill out to express your health care wishes. Google “Hawaii Advance Health Care Directive” or “California Advance Health Care Directive (California Probate Code Sample Form).” Ideally, have an estate planning attorney guide you to make sure your wishes conform to both state and federal law. Your health care directive will allow you to make clear:
• What is important to you when you are dying.
• Specific medical treatments you want or do not want.
•  Whether you want to be in a nursing home, a hospital or at home.
•  Your preferences regarding palliative care/pain management and hospice care. 
•  Who is authorized to make sure your wishes are carried out.
Keep your original signed form and give copies to the person you appoint as your agent and to any alternates, to your physician, family members, and the health care institution providing your care.
Don’t rely on this brief article for authoritative guidance. An estate planning attorney is your best resource.

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.
