Gurudeva had a great vision to put funds into an endowment for Iraivan, even as we built the temple. Now the endowment is able to provide income for families like these. It’s tough times economically so we’re very happy to be able to provide some employment.
The idea of Monistic Theism is seen in the three perfections of God Siva. Theism is the face of evolving, monism is always the Truth.
