Sashi Subramanian, wife Gayathri Narayanan and their children are on pilgrimage for a few days from California. They were last here in 2006 and attended our donor receptions in the San Francisco area. They are strong supports of Iraivan temple. Their little baby girl is Meru and their 9-year-old daughter, Maitreyi.
They had darshan with Bodhinatha this morning.
They came to visit the Media Lab this afternoon and visited with Paramacharya Palaniswami. “Nice to see a bit behind the scenes,” Gayathri noted.

The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
