Visitors today on our public tour were an interesting group. The seemed extra sensitive to the “sannidhya” (powerful force of sanctity that radiates out and around a holy place) of the temple grounds. One gentleman gave testimony regarding a professor at Stanford University who has published evidence that material changes are evident in areas where deep mediation are performed over a sustained period of time.
It is a special treat to see the silpis actually at work on the temple. Here Silpi Kannan finishes the last course of the beautiful railing!
This inspired pilgrim did the entire tour without shoes (even the gravel road) as a discipline.
Kulamata Amala speaking to the group about our Rudraksha project and fund raising for Iraivan.
These are our neighbors, Beverly & Bart. Bart’s mother is visiting and loved her time at the Temple.
Gurudeva teaches that in our tradition there is always pure devotion/bhakti for God but it deepens as we progress as a calm, intelligent expression of love. Theism leads to monism. Behold the light of life through meditation. Perceive one light in everything, everyone. We are That when we reach the last stage of wisdom. Experience that God is Love and then you become that Love.
