Today another team of silpis concluded their two year tour of duty. They had a final darshan with Bodhinatha this morning and Kulapati Jiva Rajasankara took them to the airport this afternoon.
This team had an unusual time because for the bulk of their stay they worked without a resident architect. Working in close cooperation with Yoginathaswami, they moved the Iraivan project forward dynamically during their stay and we are all grateful for their contribution to this historic temple.
The stones for the next phase, the railings, front entrance and the balance of the Nandi Mandapam are still in the process of being carved. For this reason we will be delaying the next team’s arrival until there is sufficient work to keep them busy. This means that Iraivan and our Siddhidata Kulam will have a rest for a while.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Control of Thought, Includes Purifying the Subconscious" (January 14, 2015)
Mechanism for major change in the subconscious mind from an ordinary to a spiritual state. Vasana Daha Tantra to clear suppressed memories. Be observant of what's going on inside. Devotion helps us to have the humility to admit our mistakes, to know at our essence we are a divine being. Refining, purifying the subconscious mind. Changing, restraining the nature of the samskaras.
