Sun One Homa

We began a new phase today.

For Satguru Speaks fans, note the new talk we posted in the side bar…. this was Bodhinatha Upadesha from last week, a very interesting talk on some differences between Christianity and Hinduism and how we should never stand still on the path.

Darshans with Bodhinatha

We are back after a three-day retreat. Here are some photos from last phase’s pilgrims.

Jai and Ganga Murugan on pilgrimage from Edmonton, Canada. Longtime devotees, on this visit they were reinstated as formal sishyas in Saiva Siddhanta Church

Kondapi family from Phoenix, Arizona, coming toward the close of their pilgrimage. The daughters Meera and Manu sang beautifully every day; Anil and Jyothi study the Master Course trilogy lessons every day at home. We will be including some of the songs by the sister’s in the music library of our new web site.

Mr. and Mrs. Umakanthan with daughter Janani and grandson Kailash visiting from southern California and New York. Three of them have visited many times before, but this is Kailash’s first visit since being born.

The Inner Workings of Temple Worship

Watch the latest upadesha from Bodhinatha:

Tour Day and Copper Roofs

Our visitors today were too numerous to fit in a single photo, so this is the first half, gathered at Iraivan to hear the story of this one-of-a-kind sacred temple in the West.

Almost as many were sitting in Kadavul Temple for the morning puja.

The Tanaka team arrived early to add copper details to the Gurudeva Visions Exhibition Shrines, officially known as the Sivadarshana Vanam.

Ultimately, this copper roofing will turn the traditional and ineluctable green as it oxidizes. Their work today is important in controlling the moisture.

Later this month a team of Sivathondars will place five copper spires on each of the three roofs.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
