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.
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
