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.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
