Gurudeva Unveiled

On the day of Mahasivaratri, Gurudeva's bronze was unveiled at the monastery. A short puja was performed by Natyam Nandinatha after an introduction by Sadasivanathaswami. Gurudeva was then uncovered with the help of Holly Young, the wax sculptor and the statue's creator. Three guests were then honored. Martin Mosko whom is helping with the Iriavan landscaping, Ava Waits who is a sister to one of the monks, visiting the Monastery for the first time, and then Holly.

    My eyes welled up and my heart jumped with joy when I saw Gurudeva’s bronze in context and garlanded and standing tall next to the familiar portrait. He came to life for us who weren’t there even through the computer, as He would like. Thank you, Holly and thank you to the Monks who envisioned this.
