Satguru Speaks fans can check out the link to the recent talk we just uploaded yesterday, in the side bar on the right.
The Siddhidata Kulam reported on their work today. Yoginathaswami continues working on advance architectural plans for drainage and earth work around the temple. He hopes to have these plans finalized by the end of the year so that we can get bids on the constructions which involved and intricate installation of drains, piping and the lava rock wall around the edge of Iraivan. The rest of his team has been focused on ground maintenance which was set aside for many moons because they had other projects. Meanwhile the “jungle” never stops and invasive species of weeds and “weed trees” need to be taken care of.
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.
