All is well at home today. The sun came out, more stones were lifted up to Iraivan and we had a tour group this morning.
After days of heavy rain the devas were cooperating today with the schedule crane stone lift at Iraivan temple
Sixteen stones were put up for the third course of the Rajagopuram
The ground team rigs the next stone to go up. These are mostly small pieces.
Also, today we loaded up sand, gravel and a cement mixer to stay on top of the temple roof. This will save the silpis many hours of lifting cement by the old bucket and pulley method.
Today we also wanted to bring you a special presentation from Skanda Shashti day that was lost on our server… (some may have noticed a few days of TAKA missing after November 2nd…)
It was a most auspicious day for the monastic order because three new Sadhaka took their vows after several years of dedicated study, preparation and begging by our monastery wall. From left to right our three new monks are Sadhaka Nandinatha, Sadhaka Tandavanatha in the middle and Sadhaka Rajanatha.
The most auspicious day for the monastic order when three new Sadhaka took their vows after several years also give a infinite remembrance to my family as Kayshana was ear pierced during the period Skanda Shashti.
There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
