Some of our local concrete worker friends came on August 1st to pour a concrete and rebar foundation for the new entrance archway. It’s just behind the Nepali Ganesha shrine.
On the last day of August the silpis began the process of placing the foundation stones for the new arch gateway at the monastery entrance.
Mixing mortar by hand and wiggling the stone into place with a bar. The placement and leveling of these foundation stones are mission critical for the arch. Stay tuned as the project progresses to a beautiful now entry to Kauai Aadheenam.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
