Left to right Vel Mahalingam, our sweet Karma yogi, the gracious Sundaramurthi Siva Sivacharya and Sadhaka Nilakantha pose for Taka. Sivacharya has been at the monastery for a few days soaking up Siva's perfect peace. He mentioned next visit will be
for five days to really enjoy all the monastery has to offer. We thank you Sivacharya for your visit and look forward to seeing you again.
Sivacharya has a sadhana of daily Atmartha puja. He displays his puja articles. A small Siva lingam is placed in the center

"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."
