The Siddhidata Kulam is really focused on repair of the pools and streams that catch the water from the stream and take it over the pali down to the rivers. Years of erosion have been exposed and rock walls are being complete renovated.
A huge job! Sadhaka Nilakantha digging out mud with ear-muffs on to protect the ears from the noise of the jack hammer and pressure washer.
Pressure washing silt away from the banks.
The lava rock walls have big gaps between and behind the stones. These are being cleaned out and then completely re-cemented in place.
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.
