Anil and Jyothi Kondapi, daughters Meera and Manu, and Jyothi’s parents are here from Arizona on pilgrimage. They attend satsangs with Chellappa and Banu Deva. Jyothi is interested to become a sishya and is reading the Master Course trilogy to learn what it’s all about.
The Kondapi family visited last year but missed doing abhishekam to the outdoor Narmada Lingam, so they were determined to do so this time. Since the water is still not flowing normally in our ponds, they had an adventure to collect water from a pond further downstream
with all the water collected, they’re ready to do abhishekam while chanting some mantras.
Devotion to Parasiva

"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."
