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.

The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
