Joining the Venkatachalms to see Iraivan Temple today are Richard and Dianne Warder from Memphis, TN and Clifford and Diana Knox from Salt Spring Island, BC Canada. All were in awe of the Temple craftsmanship and the peaceful beauty of the land and river.
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.
