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.”
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
