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.
The divine is in everyone. "See everyone as God." Even in the terrorist, even in the criminal, the seed of divinity is there. Over many lifetimes that divinity is supposed to grow. Bring in devotion, that moves out emotion, displaces anger. As Chellapaswami said: "Oru pollaappum illai." We should accept everything that happens because nothing is wrong.
