For many long years, almost 20, the Rajasankara family has managed the Iraivan Temple worksite. All that time they lived a most austere life, raising their two boys in a humble home that was more like a shanty. Gurudeva and the swamis stayed there many times, and great work radiated out from the home. With the new move these past couple of years, that home had to be abandoned and a new one built. After an enormous amount of effort, Jiva and his wife Kanmani have moved into their new manager’s quarters. Congratulations to the entire family for making this manifest so Iraivan can continue its march toward completion.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
