Work on the Nandi for Iraivan has begun. Here is a cement model done without ornamentation. It is done i order to ensure we have the right proportions of the Nandi before silpis begin working on stone.
Peedams for Iraivan’s Pancha Brahman Koshta murthis are finished. The murtis are in the polishing stage now. You can see on the background the murtis are yet to be polished when these images were taken.
Yalli drawings and models in progress also. These will be the sides of the stairway from ground level up to the Nandi Mandapam.
One Response to “Iraivan Addition Progress in India”
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
