With a storm warning in effect for the day we did not know how much we could accomplish before the wind and rains came. Fortunately we were blessed to have a dry morning with just a sprinkle as yet another course of stones was lifted up to the Rajagopuram of Iraivan.
Yoginathaswami and the silpis wait aloft. What an incredible job of scaffolding the Siddhidata Kulam has done to provide a working platform.
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.
