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.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
