Anil, Devajyothi, Meera and Manu Kondapi family are visiting for eight days from Phoenix, Arizona. They enjoy the grounds so much that they’ve been coming up every morning, singing beautifully during the puja.
The Ranganath and Narayan families from northern California. Ranganatha say they had the honor of meeting our late Gurudeva 20 years ago and he actually gave them a personal driving tour of grounds, pointing out the spot where Iraivan Temple would eventually rise up. They are so happy to see what has progressed since then.
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.
