Each year Kulapati Deva Seyon and Tandu Sivanathan take joy in cleaning the Big Nandi in front of Kadavul. They continued on today working on Tiruvalluvar and Tirumular in front of the monastery courtyard.
This was one of the first two pieces of granite that Gurudeva had shipped from India, since then there has been a non-stop flow of marvels sponsored by Saiva Siddhanta Church and Himalayan Academy.
Of course there is Iraivan, but also many Ganesha murtis for temples all over the world, giant statues for here and Mauritius, and art work… more pieces than you can count, all gracing our grounds, our temples, our books, the internet.
It is all part of a not-so-secret plan to “infiltrate, uplift and illumine” the planet with Hindu cultural and religious imagery and teachings.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
