KAUAI, HAWAII, March 20, 2023 (Kauai’s Hindu Monastery Press Release): As many of you already know, our large, 700-pound, crystal Sivalinga has been “temporarily” residing in Kadavul Temple since August 1987, awaiting its move to the Iraivan Temple sanctum. Our architect, Selvanathan Sthapati, has indicated that now that the all-stone, hand carved Iraivan Temple structure is complete and the 11,000-pound panchaloha Avudaiyar base has been moved into the inner sanctum, we need to move forward with installing the Sivalinga. Based on that instruction from our master builder and guidance from India’s Sivacharya priests, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami has set the Sivalinga installation rituals for March 21-26, 2023. These historic rites will be professionally filmed and livestreamed on our YouTube channel for everyone to have a front row seat wherever you live around the world. Access in person is for invited guests only and already at the highly limited capacity.
A just-uploaded trailer video for the ceremonies can be viewed here, https://youtu.be/Bl4jByKGW3U.
