Today we honored Chidambaram Sthapati who has completed his stay at Kauai Aadheenam and is returning to India the day after tomorrow. He is a beautiful soul and has been working on the Iraivan temple for seventeen years. Without him, the temple would not exist. In India he was the chief architect at the carving site and then here on Kauai he has been instrumental in the completion of the main structures.
Bodhinatha honored him today for his wonderful service.
Thank you Sthapati!

"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."
