It is a beautiful day at Kauai Aadheenam. All the monks are home from travels and everyone is focused on their work. The weeks of rain have let up and we had a clear bright cool sunny winter’s day. It was indeed yet another perfect day in Siva’s Perfect Universe.
The inside of Iraivan in the morning picks up the early morning sun for magical moments….. Here we are waiting for the Thai Pongal pot to boil over.
Bodhinatha went for a walk inside Iraivan, circumnambulating the main sanctum, as will many hundreds of thousands of pilgrims in the centuries to come.

Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
