Below is a 15-second timelapse of the gold gilding of the Kadavul Temple kodimaram. Weather made it hard to capture, but you can see the scaffolding, and glimpses of the priming and gold-leafing.

"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."
