At the Kumbhabhishekam of the Sri Somesvara Siva Temple in the Great Smokey Mountains of North Carolina, Kulapati Easan Katir presents a gift from Satguru Bodhinatha to the temple’s founder, Dr. Michael Mamas. It is a heavy brass Hanuman bell, handcrafted in Hardwar, India. The pujari spontaneously chants a prayer to Hanuman Ji and says they will use it every day during the temple pujas.
The sanctum of the temple was carved in India. The five-day Kumbhabhishekam was conducted by 9 priests. The Siva temple is the centerpiece of a 300-acre Vastu-planned community.

"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
