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.
What is happening in the world is supposed to be happening, not because God wants it to happen but because man created it. There is no advantage, as a normal citizen, to get disturbed by violence in the world. Impact your own sphere of influence by being a peaceful person, radiating compassion and concern for others. Take responsibility, realizing karma is the source, our creation, attracting the people we encounter, the experiences we go through.
