ALOHA generally means Love/Peace/Compassion. It is used as greetings, farewells and to express love in Hawaiian culture. In reality, ALOHA has far deeper meanings. It contains a fundamental code of ethics which is a way of life.The code is derived from one of the acronymic meanings of Aloha:

A, ala – watchful, alertness

L, lokahi – working with unity

O, oia’i’o  – truthful, honesty

H, ha’aha’a  – humility 

A, ahonui  – patient, perseverance

The kahuna David Bray interprets this code as “Come forward, be in unity and harmony with your real self, God, and mankind. Be honest, truthful, patient, kind to all life forms, and humble.”
