The silpis are continuing their push on the floor.
They have made much progress in the past few months and are getting faster at this.
The angles of the floor are critical, to be sure the almost daily tropical rains drain out of the temple and not leave puddles here and there.
It's official Tour Day, and some 70 or so good souls are visiting the monastery this morning. Here Deva Seyon has brought them out to Iraivan and as they admire the pillars and sculptures, he tells them the amazing story.
They all get a chance to visit some Rudraksha trees which are on the West side of Iraivan.
There is good news today from he monastery: God is in all things!
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
