JAFFNA, SRI LANKA, March 24, 2019 (Asian Tribune): His Holiness Bodhinatha Veylanswami, 163rd Head of the Nandinatha Sampradaya's Kailasa Paramparaand Guru at Kauai's Hindu Monastery - a sprawling 382-acre temple-monastery complex on Hawaii's Garden Island, was last Friday at Maviddapuram Kandaswamy Kovil, with a busload of his disciples and devotees from America to participate in the special puja held here. The American Hindu Chief Prelate, the largest and oldest Hindu Monastery in the Western world, participated in the homam (a very powerful Vedic ritual performed in the Temples of Lord Shanmuga, to keep us protected from all evil forces and lead a very blissful and devotional life).
American Swamiji when speaking to Asian Tribune said that successive heads of the Hindu Monastery located in Hawaii, used to visit Sri Lanka since from 1969, to numerous Holiest Hindu shrines scattered all over the Island Republic. He said that there are Ishwarams (abodes of Lord Shiva) sung, venerated and glorified by Hindu saints of yore. He specifically said that his visit was the second one to the Holiest Maviddapuram Temple, located in Kanesanthurai, the western tip of the Northern Sri Lankan Peninsula. Maviddapuram, a Lord Skantha's Temple, located in Kankesanthurai, is older than 2500 years, and was constructed by the Chola Princess Maruthapura Veeravalli.
