When one looks at this beautiful temple, it is amazing to think that it was carved and assembled put together with such simple tools. Of course there is the crane and the forklift but the rest is done with nothing but hammer, chisels and simple measuring and alignment tools.
The temple always reminds me of our sadhana; a beautiful and elaborate structure constructed using simple tools. These tools are used with great skill and dedication according to an ancient agamic plan under the direction of an inspired satguru. It is such a beautiful thing!
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
