Sadhaka Tejadevanatha’s father, Chuck Baumann and sister Ashley arrived for a visit. They could not have picked a more auspicious day. Sadhaka Tejadevanatha is an integral part of the Siddhidata Kulam team that is building the temple along with the silpis. Sadhaka’s father is very proud to see first hand the work his son is doing.
Yoginathaswami explains the intricacies of the construction. Chuck is in the business of doing large scale and beautifully designed high end “water features” construction ranging from fancy swimming pools to intricate pools and fountains integrated into marvelous landscapes and residential designs. As a building artisan he can really apprecaite the work going on here.
Ashley is an up-and-coming young associate producer working for the renowned reality show production company, DuBose Entertainment, Hollywood, California.
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.
