Palaniswami and Senthilnathaswami returned today, diving into the completion of the January issue of Hinduism Today, the archway gate completion and more. They brought back this delightful painting. It is Siva and Gurudeva, Kauai and Wailua, complete with the most creative rainbow waterfall cascading down the face of Mount Waialeale. It is the work of Chudika Mahadevan, and in case you can't read the ribbons, they say "Life is meant to be lived joyously" and "Everything that is happening is good. Everything that is happening is meant to be."
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
