We Work Hard To Provide You The Best Quality Hindu books and religious items
At Kauai’s Hindu Monastery the monks planted rudraksha trees in the late 1970’s. Since then our local sevaks (volunteers) have been gathering, sorting, cleaning and drilling the beads for devotees to purchase. The sales help to fund the construction of Iraivan Temple. These beads are the crown jewels of the monastery, and we offer them here at our online store.
Also available are rudraksha beads in various mukhis (faces) from South India and Nepal. Each rudraksha comes with an authentication certificate to prove it is a real rudraksha.
Kauai’s Hindu Monastery
Kauai Aadheenam, also known as Kauai’s Hindu Monastery, is a traditional South-Indian style monastery-temple complex on the tropical Garden Island of Kauai in the Hawaiian chain in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The head of the monastery, called the Guru Mahasannidhanam, is Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.
Exploring Kauai’s Hindu Monastery, you will hear about Gurudeva, the brilliant soul who established this sanctuary and enriched uncounted lives. He was a shining example of awakening and wisdom, recognized worldwide as one of Hinduism’s foremost masters. His prodigious genius, flair and inspiration permeate this spiritual oasis and continue to guide the lives of those he trained and initiated.
Gazing across the valley of the Wailua River and its Nani Kaua Pond, you see the gold-leafed domes of Indian design shimmering in the sunlight, with majestic Mount Waialeale in the background. You are beholding the towers of Iraivan Temple, a pure and powerful white granite wonderment carved in India by hand and erected ten thousand miles away on this Garden Island by India’s master stonemasons.
