Rajagopuram Moves Upward

Today we had another auspicious stonelift!

This is the main part of the gourgeously carved Rajagopuram, which will adorn the entrance to Iraivan.

This is how we lifted it, using a special steel cable that goes through the stone’s carved holes. It weights more than six tons. And we are very, very safety-oriented.

It is a rainy day, but nothing can stop our devoted team.

Iraivan is looking and feeling more like an ancient temple with each stone we add. It is truly one of those marvels that can only be found in India — and now on Kaua’i.

Somehow, it evokes the best of the old and the best of the new, the best of East and the best of West.

Jai Gurudeva! You alone made this possible.

    Jai Gurudeva! Aum ShambavĂ© Namaha! Gurudeva actually showed that life’s ultimate realisation is to exist for the well being of others, making the East and the West living as one family. This resembles a grandpa helping two opponents to shake hands and learn to live in harmony!
    Aum Namah Sivaya!
