Message from Satguru
Kadavul Hindu Temple’s 9am Siva puja was again well-attended in the month of June. Group size is still limited to fifty percent of normal capacity because of Kauai County COVID-19 restrictions. Attendance requires registering ahead of time via email. Ardra abhishekam to Nataraja was held on June 11th. The Chitra puja for Gurudeva on June 19th was the 262nd held since his departure into Siva’s world of light. My Sun One early morning talks presented Gurudeva’s teachings on utilizing our intuition. I began with Gurudeva’s statement: “Though we often use the terms ‘unfolding intuitive faculties’ and ‘developing intuition,’ they are only used in an effort to encourage the aspirant on the path to work within himself in subduing his intellect so that he can actually observe the already functioning totality of the intuitive area of the mind.... Once an inkling of success comes in knowing intuition and how it differs from reasoning, emotional impulses and preprogrammed patterns within the subconscious, the contest is won. Then and then only we must persist to sustain this knowledge and dive deeper into the inevitable, all the time losing the future and the past, and loosening the reins of the intellect.” In my last Zoom satsang this month, I presented Gurudeva’s concept of living within the box of dharma, fulfilling dharma, worship, holy days, pilgrimage and samskaras. General contributions for June totaled $84,807, which is more than our minimum monthly goal of $70,000. Special project contributions totaled an additional $1,174. 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
Assuring the health and well-being of their offspring is the most essential duty of parents to their children, never to be neglected. Beyond this, parents should provide a good example to their children, being certain that they are taught the Hindu religious heritage and culture along with good values, ethics, strength of character and discipline. Sons and daughters should worship regularly at puja with the parents, and the Hindu sacraments should all be provided. Education in all matters is the duty of the parents, including teaching them frankly about sex, its sacredness and the necessity to remain chaste until marriage. Children must learn to respect and observe civil law and to honor and obey their elders. Parents must love their children dearly, and teach them to love. The best way to teach is by example: by their own life, parents teach their children how to live. The Vedas declare, “Of one heart and mind I make you, devoid of hate. Love one another as a cow loves the calf she has borne. Let the son be courteous to his father, of one mind with his mother. Let the wife speak words that are gentle and sweet to her husband.”

Each year Dr. Matt Ritter (next to Paramacharya) brings a group of PhD botanists from California Polytechnic State University to visit Siva’s gardens. They brought some new and rare plants.
COVID Update
We are pleased to announce that, after well over a year, the monastery’s front grounds are open from 9 AM to noon. The temple itself is open with limited capacity, by reservation, for the 9 AM puja or later morning visits. Email for a reservation.
Iraivan Temple Progress
Silpi Murugesan makes some crucial measurements during the installation of the Iraivan kodimaram. Inset is a sketch of the wooden, metal clad “flag” he is assembling.
Recently two truckloads of scaffolding arrived, along with a five-man team of workers from Honolulu, to prepare platforms for the gold leafing project of Iraivan Temple’s gopurams. The team of gold leafing artisans from Gilders Studio in Maryland will be here at the beginning of August to do this work. The silpis continued their work of detail carving and re-grouting the joints between the ceiling stones.
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami’s activities
During the 2020 lockdown, Satguru would present a webinar, twice a week, to his close devotees using the Zoom platform. One was hosted by devotees in Northern California and the other by devotees in Singapore. Even though the COVID lockdowns are easing, Satguru has agreed to continue the Zoom satsangs, on the same schedule, at the request of the participants. You can see his nine-part webinar series “Climbing the Ladder of Consciousness” at our Kauai’s Hindu Monastery YouTube channel, as well as his webinars “Dance and the Spiritual Path” and “Experiencing Our Innate Divinity.”

Farm News
On our Himalayan Acres farm, the ambitious goal, set in 2004, of planting 100 acres with hardwood trees (as a future monastery endowment) has been reached. The last field was planted with 2,500 Koa seedlings, partially financed by two US government grants. These trees were mostly started from seed here at the monastery nursery. The first planting of Honduran Mahogany, done in 2004, will be ready for harvest in 2034. Our Wailua River Noni farm has begun producing organic noni powder, available in bulk and capsules.
Hinduism Today’s July ’21 is Published!
Hinduism Today’s latest issue has gone to press and is now available online free of charge at You can also download our free Hinduism Today app and get the entire magazine in a mobile-friendly format for your device here. Several of our articles reveal the impact of Covid-19 on the Hindus of the world. Our publisher, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, offers some keys to using the lockdown’s gift of time (no commutes) to develop plans for a better future. One of our youth writers describes her family’s digital wedding (it went surprisingly well). We dedicate our 16-page educational Insight to the little ones, publishing chapters from our most recent illustrated book for kids. Called Lion Sage, it is the story of a wise lion who becomes the guru of a curious, mystical mouse. Many profound doctrines are introduced in a series of fun tales.
Our correspondent in Bengaluru, Choodie Sivaram, takes us to one of the world’s richest temples, Padmanabhaswami in Kerala, where the management control has just been returned to the royal family following a long legal battle that ended up in the highest court. With assets worth billions of US dollars, this was a huge win for Hindu holy sites and a good precedent for freeing the thousands of temples that still suffer under government supervision.
Photographer and writer Dev Agarwal takes us down the Ganges River, the part below Haridwar that is seldom showcased. He follows the water for some 600 miles, all the way to Varanasi, visiting the people along the sacred river’s banks.
The folk art of Maitila is explored. It’s an art form that began with painted walls in Rajasthan, then morphed to canvas. Now a group of talented and savvy women in Nepal are changing it again, this time by building an art center and applying their ancestral graphic genius to create many items, including calendars, cards, dolls and saleable goodies. Their work is bringing the Maitili art form back to life. Our young writers were allowed to select their own subjects, and you will see their evolving craft in articles on building Shivaji forts in the US, and a surprising piece that explores the Hindu knowledge of John Adams, America’s second President who knew more about the shastras than you might think.
Other articles include an editorial on families studying the Gita online; interviews with knowledgeable Hindus on the tough issues the Hindu community in America faces today; our popular Quotes & Quips section with humor, cartoons and sagely sayings; Global Dharma with mini-stories from around the world; and Digital Dharma, which introduces our own Hinduism Today mobile app, so you can read years of features online while waiting for an Uber. It’s a rich issue, with something for everyone.
Charitable Lead Trust
Legacy Gift Ideas for Young People
“To those whom much is given, much is expected.” (JFK)
In a hopeful sign for the future, 74% of Millennials and 66% of Gen Z donated money to charity during the coronavirus pandemic. This is striking. In the midst of chaos and economic uncertainty, when retreat and isolation may have felt more comfortable, these young populations leaned into the world, determined to make a difference. Young individuals are willing to support causes they care about and are frequently active, hands-on stewards of their donations. This same population is less frequently approached by charitable organizations, as they are assumed to be resource poor and building wealth. This is a mistake, as Millennials and Gen Z have a tremendous opportunity to begin building a legacy of giving.
Teaching children to give while they are young is an important life skill
There are several reasons for this.
First, giving conversations have a natural context as life events occur. When you sit down to write your first will, you are more likely to be open and willing to incorporate a charity. It is always mentally easier to set something up initially than revise it later. When you are setting up a life insurance policy for the first time, it is a natural moment to consider broadening it to include a charity.
Second, there are significant benefits to starting certain giving patterns at a younger age. For example, a life insurance policy may offer lower premiums upfront, have a greater potential return and allow the donor to take advantage of tax deductions. The benefits of this kind of policy are explained in detail in (
Third, as individuals begin families of their own, inspiration for donating is personal and present. Sharing values of giving, generosity and activism with children is important, and the best way to share such a value is to model it. We are all motivated and inspired by creating a better world for the next generation, and no one more so than a young parent.
Lastly, many young individuals may have received donations, perhaps through endowments or grants for travel. Experiencing that kind of gift first hand is a recent and strong emotional memory that can prompt an individual to give back in their turn. While economic difficulties may persist for Millennials, and Gen Z may still be too young to participate, there is no better time than the present to share and educate these young generations on valuable opportunities for giving. They have already shown themselves to be compassionate and active donors in a time of grave uncertainty and need.
One of the most powerful ways to teach children how to give is through teaching them gratitude. By helping children articulate the gifts they have through no merit of their own, you can help a child understand that they are deeply blessed. That sense of fortune can, in turn, prompt them toward compassion and generosity.
As an example, when a child encounters someone less fortunate in some regard, use the moment as an opportunity to ask the child about how they think that person’s life might be, what challenges they may face, and how they might benefit from help. Share stories from your life, or your family history, about moments of less fortune and the helping hands along the way.
When a child offers generous help, be sure to properly acknowledge the moment with praise. When a child receives help, expand on the gratitude that is felt so they recognize the power they have to help improve another person’s life.

Here Is My Contribution to
Help Finish Iraivan Temple
Sponsor the Yalli Handrails or Bronze Panels
Entrance Handrails: On either side of the nine entrance steps are two massive single-stone sculptures nine feet long and four feet tall in the form of yallis, a mythical creature composed of several animal species. While serving as handrails, they are in reality works of art that pilgrims experience while climbing up the steps to the Nandi Mandapam. The undulating form issuing from the yalli’s mouth is not just a design. It is his roar, the fearsome sound he makes to protect the temple from intruders. Sponsorship for each of the two yallis is $51,000.
Bronze Panels Telling Iraivan’s Story:There are 35 bronze panels, 14” by 47,” embedded in the perimeter wall, with text and illustrative sculptures. They tell the story of Iraivan: its founding (and founder), how it was designed and carved, the timeline of its creation, the philosophy of Saiva Siddhanta, our guru paramparai, Saiva holy texts and more. These panels will inform visitors for generations to come. Sponsorship is $2,500 for each panel.
