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!
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Dvitiya Tithi, Sun One, Thursday, July 23rd.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
