Master Course student, Thushyanthan Amritalingam from Calgary, works in IT but otherwise is a top-notch photographer. He also takes photos into Adobe Lightroom and retouches them. We could not resist sharing with you this amazing series. He has taken color photos and turned many of them into sepia or black and white images. The effect is amazing.

We put up the whole collection as a slideshow, along with one of our favorite Natchintanai: Engal Gurunathan by Pon Sundaralingam.
Aum Namah Sivaya!
Absolutely beautiful pictures, I felt as If I were transported to Kauai Aadheenam.
Great Job Thushyanthan Amritalingam!Thank you!
also what a wonderful rendition of Engal Gurunathan…
By the way where can I find this version by Pon Sundaralingam?
I think that if these were to be made available as photographs, framed or not, in the store that they would sell like hotcakes. ESP the bleached out ones. I’d buy one in a heartbeat…ESP if I knew the profit was going into the building fund (hint, hint 🙂
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
