Eight major cities and one country can't stop these relentless traveling monks. Canada welcomes us and we hit the ground running with a full on 130 guest event later that day. Let's walk through the eye of my lens and see what I saw.

"Ultimate Goals: Realization, Liberation, Merger" (September 24,2016)
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
Path to Siva, Chapter 3.

We have a special treat for you today. Thanks to Bobby and Kathy Page, of Loveland's very own Page Bronze team, we bring you the step-by-step process of a bronze piece. Our traveling monks got to see some updates of Iraivan's work, and also an entire lesson on coloring, or bronze patination, work on a sculpture.
The day starts with a sunrise meditation that grasps one's soul and leaves a part of it in the dry desert air of Arizona. Siva's monks spent the morning with Chelleppa and Banudevi Deva, a wonderful pair of church members that have the most delightful stories of their loving, powerful guru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami.
We visited two places that morning. One was a botanical garden and the other was a cactis nursery, which was surprisingly stunning. Follow the walk in our short slideshow.
For many years the Golden Gate Mission members have been making clay Ganesha's and selling them at Ganesha Chaturthi time to raise funds for the Iraivan Temple. They have facilitated the "Paint Ganesha" satsangs events for families in the area. This year the event was also celebrated in 3 other states. Kulamata Sundara Katir sends us this album of images collected by devotees who celebrated Ganesha Chathurti in the Palaniswami Sivan Temple in Concord California and in Oregon, Texas and Arizona.
