Sun Three

The Siddhidata Kulam gave their news today. Yoginathaswami has been very much focused on the second course of the Nandi Mandapam. The jointing is nearly complete, having made the levels and fitting just perfect, the silpis are ready to mortar it permanently in place.

The rest of the team has been working on upgrading our office containers: pressure washing and painting both the Siddhidata Kulam and Ganapati Kulam annex.

Yoginathaswami also watched closely and assisted the metal works who drilled holes into the archway in preparation for hanging the coming new gate.

You can see the two holes on one side. It looks simple: but let us assure you drilling holes in granite in the exact correct spot is a job!

    Why were the monks drilling holes in them?

    Recall from prior TAKA Talk those perfectly placed holes will hold a magnificently designed handmade gate for pilgrims to pass through when the temple is open. On Retreat days and off hours it might be closed to indicate that the monks are scheduled for uninterrupted quiet time. Jai Ganapati, good uninterrupted quiet time for them is what makes each visit to the temple so fulfilling for each of us!
