Our two paramacharyas, Sadasivanatha Palaniswami and Sivanatha Ceyonswami, ventured to the town of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii today to meet with sculptress Holly Young. Holly is near the final stages of tweaking the wax model of Gurudeva later to be cast in metal. Our paramacharyas are there to check in on the last fine details to make sure they are accurate.
To remind all, this sculpture of Gurudeva is of him explaining his early morning three-fold vision of Lord Siva to Dr. V. Ganapathy Sthapathi, of whom a bronze facsimile will also be crated. They both will be placed in a spot called “Temple Builders’ Memorial” our near San Marga Iraivan Temple along with other bronzes of silpis carving the temple. All pieces are life-size.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)
All experiences are good experiences, necessary to get us here. Awareness of aspects of ourselves that are constantly changing is a liberating perception, breaking our chains to mundane areas, detaching from instinctive and intellectual to go into superconscious. The greatest challenge facing youth today is the lack of relating to the devotional side of Hinduism. Daily practice, daily vigil, moves us forward spiritually.
