These two lovely families arrived from Cerritos, CA to attend the morning puja and later toured the Iraivan Temple. Hamendra and Rekha Doshi were here with their daughter, Vidhi and are originally from Mumbai. While Suresh and Anju Bansal and their daughter, Nisha are originally from Delhi. Both families felt deeply moved by their experience here and stated that "this was one of the most spiritual places they had ever visited."
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.
