The monks of the Siddhidata Kulam along with Maruthu and Potriyan from Malaysia are placing more concrete on the Iraivan Temple roof. Only four yards of concrete will be required for this job. It was decided that they could mix it by hand and carry it in buckets.
Using the forklift they lift the buckets of concrete to the roof.
Then carry the buckets across the roof.
Durvasa Alahan, on the left, has joined the team to perform some karma yoga.
Near Durvasa's right hand is a hole drilled through the stone on the edge of the roof. Rainwater should run through the hole and through the crocodile shaped rain spout. This new layer of concrete, which will be poured along the entire length of the roof, will allow the rainwater to drain correctly.
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.
