Dr. Thiagarajan Rajagopalan arrived from Chennai yesterday and is our special guest for a week. Saravananathaswami is hosting him today with a grand tour. Here they are up on top of the temple watching the gold leaf work in progress.
A retired professor who was head of the Sanskrit department at Presidency College Chennai, we hired him to produce quality recordings of our Ganesha puja and other chants which can now be found here:
"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."
