As we proceed with developments in the background on the future of our new web site make over, we will release little “tidbits” when we can.
One major upgrade will be to put modern slideshow technology to work that (for the nerds among you) does not use Flash, and which has a very simple content management system that will allow us to create slide show efficiently with little task over head and also be able repurpose easily in the future.

Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
