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.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
