Today our Siddhidata Kulam gave their report. Yoginathaswami shared drawings in progress for the design of the giant teak doors for Iraivan and also the enormous yalli side buttress pieces for the steps on the South end of the Nandi Mandapam of Iraivan temple. His kulam also detailed the wide array of sivathondu they did, taking care of the garden, picking all our fruit and vegetables, taking care of all the equipment and storage of a vast array of tools and supplies to keep the Aadheenam physical infrastructure functioning: 3 road vehicles; 1 farm tracker, forklift, skid steer, 4 utility vehicles, 2 dozen or so air conditioning, dehumidifers and refrigeration units, washing machines, drier, all the electrical appliances and plumping, weedwackers, chainsaws, welding tools and more and more. This on top of the total logistical support for Iraivan temple construction, maintenance of our land and waterways, oversight of building permits, outside contractors… the list goes on and on. The scope of what our Siddhidata Kulam does is mind-boggling and they do a great job! Thank you!
Hindus believe in each individual as a soul, a divine being who is inherently good. We all have a threefold nature: instinctive, intellectual, intuitive. Develop the intuitive/spiritual/soul nature with compassion, devotion, penance. Use the intellect to help subdue the instinctive mind. Guilt is not a part of Hinduism. There is no eternal hell. You have a continuity of consciousness when you transition to the inner worlds. There is no devil, but there are mischievous "asuras."
