Thamby Kumaran has been here for a week or so, working closely with Yoginathaswami.
He leaves for home again early tomorrow morning. He gave Bodhinatha an update of his work on Iraivan Temple’s site map.
He has also been working both here and before from California with Swami on plans that detail precisely the excavation work needed to prepare for the entry way stairs to the Nandi Mandapam and around the temple.

Years ago Thamby was remodeling a fireplace in upscale Peidmont. Before putting the wall up, he carefully and securely framed an electrical socket in the framing. The multi-millionaire owner asked Thamby, “why do you go to so much trouble to make that so perfect? No-one will ever know.”
Thamby looked up and replied, “Yes, you’re right. But I’ll know.”
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.
