In front of the Iraivan Temple sanctum, in orange, is Parankusah Hanumath Prasad who is one of the priests from the Baloji Temple in Aurora, a suburb of Chicago. Accompanying him from Chicago are Lingahneni Jagan Mohan Rao, Lingammenu Uma, and Akkineni Sudarsana Rao, all devotees of Sri Ganapathi Sachidananda Swamiji of the Mysore Datta Peetham.
After enjoying a wonderful morning puja in the Kadavul Temple our guests then toured the grounds. Shaded under the canopy they pause beside the sacred swayambu lingam where Gurudeva experienced his threefold vision of God Siva.
Following the path around the lotus ponds which honor the sixty-three South Indian Nayanar Saints, Prasad stops to perform abishekam at the sacred Narmada Lingam.
