Two pilgrims visited recently from Chennai (last phase)
Our visitor is a UK-based law professor specializing in proprietary rights, international copyrights, and that whole field. If ever we need counsel on a rights issue, she would be able and happy to assist.
Dr. Chamundeeswari Kuppuswami, PhD, is a Lecturer in Law at the University of Sheffield in the UK. An artist and dancer, Chamundeeswari knew our artist S. Rajam well, and was with him just days before his passing earlier this year. She shared a video of him with the monks. And the monks took her on a tour de force of S. Rajam’s hundreds of works of art done for us over the decades.
Her friend, Aparnadevi, is an IT specialist in San Jose, California, and a wonderful singer.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
