Erasenthiran Poonjolai, his wife Subashini, son Naavalan, and mother are here on few days pilgrimage. Originally from Malaysia, the family is now settled in Arizona, USA.
Erasenthiran is a Dikshasishya of Saiva Siddhanta Church, and Subashini is a formal Himalayan Academy Master Course student on her way to becoming a formal sishya too. Erasenthiran was last here ten years ago; it’s the first visit for the others, a long dream come true.
Finally meeting the Svayambhu Lingam, where Gurudeva’s vision took place to being the Iraivan Temple project

"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
