More Media Studio Refinements

Of the few larger projects left to be done in the Media Studio, the washroom has been the main focus over the last few weeks. Acharya Kumarnathaswami and our hired master-carpenter Jeff, have been working hard to instal the room's vinyl and finish the stone and grout work. The large mirror has also been installed and the ceiling has received its moulding and been painted with a final coat. All that is left is to finish the grout, install the fixtures, and hang the door. Progress is also being made in the entry hall way and elsewhere.

Preparing Stones to be Shipped to Kauai

Jive recently sent us these images from the Bangaluru carving site, where the stones for Iraivan have been cleaned and crated for their long journey to Kauai.

A New Meeting Space

After over a year of having their morning meetings outside in the Banyon Mandapam, the Ganapati Kulam has officially had their first full phase of meetings in the Media Studio. Thought the studio is not fully completed, it is far enough along to have a comfortable, element-free discussion.

Stones to be Shipped to Kauai

We recently recently received these photos from Jiva at the Bangaluru carving site. These are some of the stones which are to be crated and shipped to Kauai. They are set to arrive in the coming weeks.

Our Paramparai Ready to Leave for Kauai

Today we received these photos from Jiva Rajasankara in Bengaluru, India. He shares good news that the last of the eight larger-than-life black granite murthis of our Kailasa Paramparai are being crated up for shipping to Hawaii. This has been a marvelous project and the quality of craftsmanship is a wonder to behold. Here is Jiva's note:

"Paramacharya, vanakkam!

Gurudeva, Bodhinathaswami and Tirumular will be leaving India to Kauai in a week's time. The container is expected to come in 2 hours time and we will load the items and the container should leave tomorrow to Chennai port.

We will only have 2 special yestis left to complete Iraivan Temple which comprises of the main temple sanctum and the Nandi Mandapam.

The Iraivan perimeter wall is in progress."
