Today's weekly tour brought over 80 guests to Siva's beautiful botanical gardens at Kauai Aadheenam. Before walking out to see the gardens and temple, Kulamata Amala Seyon explains details of Iraivan Temple project at the sandalwood model and photo display.
Guests observe the silpis fitting the floor stones and handrail on the North end of the temple.
Group photos of our visitors.
Because of the large groups coming for the weekly tour, the silpis give two carving demonstrations so visitors can see the work up close.

Don't let down. Success comes with consistency of conduct. Improve and control our mind and behavior standards twenty-four hours a day. Monistic Theism, our tradition, is a dual approach. Worshiping God on the outside; claiming and realizing God on the inside. Going deep within to find That which does not change. The path of Saivism: "Bhakti-raja-siddha yoga leading to oneness."
