Message from Satguru
September and October continued our quiet retreat from the world with the monastery still closed as Kauai maintains its 14-day quarantine requirement for travelers (unless they receive a negative Covid test within 72 hours before their flight). Special ceremonies held during this time were two monthly Ardra abhishekams to Lord Nataraja and two Chitra pada pujas to Gurudeva. Gurudeva’s pujas were live-streamed. Our online satsangs utilizing Zoom Video Communications were held on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning Hawaii time, on all of the weekends in September and October. The number of individuals participating is steadily growing. The most recent topic was “What is higher consciousness?” in which we discussed the practices Hinduism gives us for moving from lower to higher consciousness. The first practice given was chanting the mantra AUM. The second was tuning in to the five shaktis of Lord Ganesha during temple puja. With all the extra challenges life is providing many people during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hindu idea of claiming our higher consciousness on a daily basis is a timely topic. Yogaswami aptly advised, “Learn how to remain always happy.” The Sun One talks in Kadavul Temple have been presenting our newest book, which is Gurudeva’s Seven Dimensions of the Mind. Though Gurudeva wrote the text in the 1970s, only a small portion was ever published, and most of the monks were unaware of the full document. My most recent talk in the series was on the fourth dimension. General contributions for the two-month period of September and October totaled $99,799, which is less than our minimum two-month goal of $140,000. Special project contributions totaled an additional $808. We are grateful to our global family of temple builders for your continued generous support. Om Namasivaya.

From Gurudeva’s Teachings
When you worship the God in the temple, through puja and ceremony, you are bringing that Divinity out of the microcosm and into this macrocosm. You supply the energy through your worship and your devotion, through your thought forms, and even your physical aura. The pujari purifies and magnetizes the stone image for this to take place. The Gods and the devas are also magnetizing the stone image with their energy, and finally the moment is ready and they can come out of the microcosm into this macrocosm and bless the people. You observe that they stayed only for an instant, but to them it was a longer time. The time sense in the inner worlds is different. If you want to get acquainted with the Gods, first get to know Lord Ganesha. Take a picture and look at it. Put a picture of Lord Ganesha in your car or in your kitchen. Get acquainted through sight. Then come to know Him through sound by chanting His names and hymns. This is how you get acquainted with your personal Deity. You will get to know Him just as you know your best friend, but in a more intimate way, for Ganesha is within you and there ahead of you to guide your soul’s evolution.

Iraivan Temple Progress
Monks and silpis carry into Iraivan Temple one of the pair of teakwood doors, encased in bas relief brass, to be installed as the inner sanctum doorway
Umut Yegal explains the way he will set the topmost stones for the plinth
The three silpi stone carvers, Manikandan, Murugesan and Adaikalan, have completed the finishing touches on the areas where the outside handrail meets each of the 21 pillars. They are now adding some artistic embellishments on the pillars at the sanctum entrance. At the beginning of October several of the monks and the silpis carried Iraivan Temple’s sanctum doors into the temple. These doors are made of solid teak and are fully clad in amazing bronze work depicting ten forms of Siva. The doors will remain in the temple while we move forward with the exacting process of fitting them to the sanctum doorway.  Our lava rock team is making steady progress on the four-foot-high wall on all sides of the temple. On the south side, the team has begun a push to build up the stones around the entry stairway. This type of lava rock construction requires massive attention to detail, as each stone must be fit perfectly with no small stones stuck in between.

Ayudha Puja
The monks and Indian sculptors gather among the pillars of Iraivan’s Maha Mandapam for the annual blessing of tools
Ayudha puja is a traditional day of blessings, celebrated at the end of Navaratri, when we give thanks to our tools and equipment. This is an especially important annual event for the members of the silpi stone carving clan. On October 24th Satguru and monks joined the silpis at Iraivan Temple for a short puja to Ganesha and Saraswati. An arati was passed over the tools which the silpis are using to build this temple. Following a ceremonial stone-chipping, Satguru presented each silpli with dakshina and everyone then enjoyed some breakfast prasadam.
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami’s Activities
On October 15 the monks celebrated Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami’s 78th Jayanti with a special dinner party. Satguru was presented with gifts, poetry and messages of appreciation from his devotees around the planet. During September and October, Satguru has been giving weekly talks on Gurudeva’s description of the seven dimensions of the mind. This highly mystical work was recently published as a souvenir edition to honor his 19th Mahasamadhi anniversary. In this little book Gurudeva offers a profound map of the universe, inner and outer. The full text has never been published until now. Each week, Satguru reads from the text and adds his commentary in a series of videos which are now on our Kauai’s Hindu Monastery YouTube channel.
News from Our Center in Mauritius
The November Ganesha Homa at our Spiritual Park in Mauritius
The wildly popular first-Sunday-of-the-month Ganesha homa continues at the Spiritual Park, hosted by the members of Saiva Siddhanta Church Mauritius for the past 18 years. Thousands of Mauritians, from all across the island, bring their written prayers each month to send to Ganesha through the sacred homa fire. Most recently the Spiritual Park held a blood donation drive in collaboration with the government Ministry of Health and Quality of Life. Ministry representatives said they were happy with the response of devotees and promised to return every month with their mobile clinic to the parking lot outside the Spiritual Park walls. The finishing touches to the newly constructed mandapams surrounding Ganesha’s shrine have been completed. The concrete pillars supporting the roofs were clad with wood and railings were added between the pillars. Landscaping around the three new mandapams and an upgrade to the Koi pond (a favorite of devotees) at the entrance to the Ganesha Mandapam is in the works.
Monastery Farm News
Some of our first tomatoes from our new greenhouse
In mid-October we harvested the first tomatoes from our new hydroponic greenhouse—a great achievement after a lot of care and hard work to create an advanced system for growing fresh vegetables. In celebration, the first tomato to ripen was presented to Satguru on his Jayanti. On Himalayan Acres, the Noni orchard was recently expanded. Our organic noni juice is now being sold at health food stores throughout Hawaii and in South Korea.
Music Video Series Completed!
On October 6, 2020, we posted the 16th and last music video in the series supplementing our popular The History of Hindu India book and documentaries. Several years ago we learned—in the process of providing the book and documentaries to California 6th grade social studies teachers—that music videos on historical topics were effective classroom teaching aids. Often set to pop songs, and running from creative to a bit on the silly side, they are surprisingly effective at conveying information. Try “The French Revolution” set to “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga for an example (bit.ly/frenchrevolutionsong). We toyed with the idea of using Bollywood songs, but went for a more cultured, original approach led by Aks and Lakshmi of Eclipse Nirvana who composed the music and performed the songs written by composer Dragan Stojkovski with the help of the Hinduism Today staff. The music videos were done by Igor Burenkov. The 14th video (bit.ly/6KeyHindu) is on six key Hindu concepts that have influenced the world: religious tolerance; God’s presence in everyone and everything at all times; ahimsa, nonviolence; profound reverence for the Earth; the law of karma; and spiritual liberation as the goal of life. “Indians Love Pilgrimage” is the 15th music video (bit.ly/HinduPilgrm). It describes this central Hindu practice, which throughout Indian history has been a great unifying factor across the subcontinent. It features the Amarnath Cave pilgrimage and the 22 purifying wells of Rameshwaram Temple. The 16th and last music video (bit.ly/IndiaPopular) celebrates the popularity of Indian food, Ayurvedic medicine and Bollywood movies across the world today.

The Value of Endowments During Times of Crisis
Kauai’s Hindu Monastery is the largest beneficiary organization of Hindu Heritage Endowment. The monastery has been closed to visitors since March 15. As the sign on its front gate and banner on its website states, “Kauai’s Hindu Monastery is closed to visitors until further notice due to State corona virus restrictions.” In fact, the whole island of Kauai has virtually been closed to visitors since March 31, when a fourteen-day quarantine for arriving passengers was put in place. Closure of the monastery has kept the monks healthy and productive these last seven months but, as visitors are a significant source of donations and other income, this closure has caused the monastery’s income to drop. Also, as the personal income of some regular donors has been reduced by COVID-19, the donations they are able to make is correspondingly lower.
Literature in the nonprofit world indicates that in 2020 because of COVID-19 many nonprofits have been forced to scale back on staffing and support programs, and some even had to close their doors. As one publication states, “Organizations with an endowment have been fortunate to be able to utilize those funds for additional support during the crisis.” Fortunately, Kauai’s Hindu Monastery has a number of endowments at Hindu Heritage Endowment. Two of them, Iraivan Temple Endowment and Kauai Aadheenam Monastic Endowment, are by far the largest and provide significant support to the monastery and its activities. The combined principal of these two endowments is approximately $12 million, which is currently providing a grant from Hindu Heritage Endowment of about $19,000 a month—an amount that covers a significant portion of the monastery’s basic operating expenses. Because of these two endowments, the monastery has not had to cut back on its activities or lay off any of its grounds workers. Kauai’s Hindu Monastery looks forward to the day, a few decades from now, when grants from its endowments at Hindu Heritage Endowment will be large enough to cover all of its basic operating expenses and provide total financial security in any future pandemic, hurricane or other event that temporarily disrupts the monastery’s normal flow of income. What is an Endowment? This animated video explains the three types of endowments in 101 seconds: www.hheonline.org/what-is-endowment.shtml. Hindu Heritage Endowment strengthens communities by supporting orphanages, temples, monasteries, schools, ashrams and homes for the elderly, youth hostels, cows, distribution of free Hindu literature and audio scripture for the blind.

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 fictitious 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.
