Work in India continues, not only on stones for Iraivan by a few other projects as well. Those who are familiar with the entrance to Kauai Aadheenam from the Kaholalele Road side know that we have a Vasana Daha Tantra burning urn at the Puakenekene Mandapam. We are approaching the installation of a granite archway soon and to go along with this is a new all granite urn for burning up things in the subconscious.
Stones that are not being used for Iraivan temple may be carved with modern tools. Here we are polishing with an electric grinder.
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.
