The Iraivan Temple has become a famous pilgrimage site for Hindus the world over, and even though this great Siva Temple has not quite been completed, guests and pilgrims continue to arrive from all over the world to enjoy the sacredness of this great spiritual sanctuary.
Pilgrims feel spiritually fulfilled after attending the wonderfully uplifting morning puja in the powerful Kadavul Siva Temple, where pujas have been performed every three hours, twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year for over three decades.
Guests then pilgrimage to the great Siva Temple known as "Iraivan" with its shining golden gopurams and magnificent capstone brilliant and resplendant in the morning sunlight.
Here visiting for the first time are guests, Kudavalli Jaganath with his wife and daughters. As well as Ravi Krishnan and his two sons, Sidharth 4 yrs, and Nikhil 2 yrs. Upon leaving Kudavalli remarked "If there is a place on earth for spirituality, it is here."
Also visiting are Vir andKiran Singh who were especially blessed to receive the darshan of Sat Guru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.
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.
