Srinivas (“Sri”) and Padma Mandalaparthy who follow TAKA regularly noted the Ganapati’s Kulams work on digital publications and decided to make a gift of an iPad to the Aadheenam. Today they joined the Ganapati Kulam to make their presentation. Their two sons were already avid users! A wonderful and timely gift to the team that is working tirelessly to get Gurudeva lifelong legacy online, and the iPad is our next platform to conquer.
Thank you Sri and Padma!
They are working daily with the trilogy, and love to find moments in life which they describe (a paraphrase of Gurudeva) moments where Siva is in all and all is Siva.
"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
