A group photo of our respectful and divine souls that were guests on the tour today. There were about 45 visitors that walked the grounds and learned something about Hinduism.
After explaining that Hindus do not believe in intrinsic evil, on guests remarked that Hindus are very forgiving. Some have been here a few times over the years and love to return to view the progress of the temple.

Don't let down. Success comes with consistency of conduct. Improve and control our mind and behavior standards twenty-four hours a day. Monistic Theism, our tradition, is a dual approach. Worshiping God on the outside; claiming and realizing God on the inside. Going deep within to find That which does not change. The path of Saivism: "Bhakti-raja-siddha yoga leading to oneness."
