Namaste to the sacred artisans who created such beautiful carvings. Siva is working so inspiringly through them. It is awesome to see the unfolding of the Iraivan temple done in such an authentic way-created with divine inspiration, love, and mantras. Surely the stone elephants have become more potently alive with Siva’s shakti. Aum Shanti
Aum Iraivan temple is bringging back the ancient age of Hinduism.The stone elepahant tells us the message of love kind and be good to the green nature.Now days there are many Hindus converting to other religion due to lack of divine teachings.I am from malaysia,people paid 500 TO 800 USD to convert from hinduism to Islam and other religion.This pople are poor and have not propper Hinduism teachings.Temple managements are using the power for political gain only.Would glad if Iraivan temple reps at Kuala Lumpur involve in more preaching and teaching of hinduism…AUM SHANTI
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "The Difference in Practice of Theism and Monism" (September 3, 2014)
During a puja we're in Theism, to receive the blessings of the Deity. After a puja we can go within our self in meditation, giving up the idea of an external Deity, Monism. Monistic Theism: Advaita Ishvaravada. Advaita means the Monism; Ishvara means the Theism.
In Shum we use two words that relate to that: shumif and dimfi. First, perfect your Theism. Then become a monist. That's called Saiva Siddhanta; one leads to the other.
