The Ganapati Kulam gave their news today. The team is very focused on completely the October edition of Hinduism Today.
Meanwhile a high-end printer in North India would like us to hire them to do some special work and sent sample of truly amazing three dimensional printing. These prints are done with a reflective surface of many layers, each layer carries a slightly different image when view from a different angle. This give the appears of depth, as if you could put your finger into some space inside the print. If you move left or right Lord Ganesha eyes will follow you!
Brahmachari Jaya Shivaraja is serving in the Ganapati Kulam and made the presentation at lunch. This Aum Mandala is particularly striking for it’s depth. You can put your hand up to it and it feels as if it is nearly holographic and about 4 inches deep.

Within our Saiva Siddhanta Holy Scriptures the Saiva Agamas explain the basis of temple ceremonies and worship plus yoga and jnana. The Tirukural was considered by Gurudeva to be "the most accessible and relevant sacred text." In it are practical and helpful guidelines for our conduct in every day life. The point of family life is to gain steady improvement, forever, in self control in the midst of responsibilities in the fulfillment of family dharma. Meanwhile, not taking detachment too far but taking it in the sense of spiritually looking for happiness, not outside in other people or possessions, the world, but inside ourselves and then sharing it with family and friends. "We regard the writings of our satgurus as scripture."

Tirukural, Chapter 15 Possession of Self-Control
"The temple enables us to feel the presence of God, Gods and devas." We use our inner eyes to see what's going on in the temple, the three worlds. In the temple we're being good dvaitists in the dimfi perspective, focused in bhakti upon God Siva. In meditation we're monists, in the shumif perspective. We claim our oneness with Siva, Sivoham, I am Siva. In surrender, shrinking the ego through devotion, we have a realization that we're not the doer, that Siva is doing it all. Siva's energy comes through our soul.
