Our Mission

Spirit of Aloha Botanical Gardens & Bird Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit spiritual service organization dedicated to promoting peace and well-being.  

25 years ago, Fredrick Swaroop Honig had a vision; to create a sanctuary and meeting place for people to experience an actual living template of Heaven on Earth.   Since then, The Gardens has hosted many tours, and sacred, educational, healing and celebratory events.  

We are a worldwide Spiritual Sangha O’hana of kindred souls who synergize our missions to accomplish as a team.

We are a branch of an ancient tradition that is oriented toward inner growth and outer service.

We are a 21st century branch for one of the world’s oldest spiritual traditions, the Holy Order of Sannyas.

We see all spiritual traditions of the world as a collective wisdom that is summarized by 12 universal values eloquently expressed as The Spirit of Aloha:

  • Mahalo – Gratitude
  • Laulima – Simplicity
  • Hauoli – Happiness
  • Noa – Freedom
  • Ha’aha’a – Humility
  • Ma’alhi – Cooperation
  • Aloha – Love
  • Maluhia – Peace
  • Ihi – Respect
  • Pono – Honesty
  • Kuleana – Service
  • Lokahi – Unity

Every event here at The Gardens includes an educational tour.
