We bring you some photos from the last days’ guests.
Seven bright happy families, all from different parts of India, America and Canada, pose for a photo while visiting the temple.
Supramaniam Suthaker brought his wife and two daughters, Nila and Roja, on pilgrimage from Edmonton, Canada. Here they pause briefly to feed
the rainbow Koi fish at one of the lotus ponds.
A beautiful prayerful Tamil song to Lord Ganesha before performing abhishekam.
Each member of the family participates in this sacred rite.
And Nandi abhishekam also.
A second visit to the Iraivan Temple to chat with silpis, Chelliaha, Karupiaha, and Lokesh in their native Tamil language.
This lovely family will later enjoy a private meeting with Sat Guru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.
Quite a large group of visitors arrived for a tour of the Iraivan Temple on the last tour day. All very happy to be here despite the sporadic episodes of heavy rain.
Larry Conklin (our crane operator) moves one of the five forms of Siva into position around the capstone with the guidance of Yoganathaswami.
Shortly before the Mahakhumba Abishekam, the Kalasam stone, representing Isana, will be placed on the very top of the lotus of the capstone.
Elsewhere, some chirpy love birds trying out a new rope swing gifted by Shakti Mahadevan, a devotee, who is also a bird lover.
Devas work through birds. We care for them with love and respect. Okay, we spoil them a little, too.
