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."

Media Studio Progress – Floor Done! Time to Move In!

Last week Acharya Kumarnathaswami with the help of Kulapati Durvasa Alahan completed the intricate work of installing the new vinyl floor in the media studio. Designed by Sadasivanathaswami... how beautiful it is! Brahmanathaswami was determined to make the move, so he brought in all the table/desk bases in and the table tops so that the innersearch team could come right in and start working when they return tomorrow. And he himself moved in and is fully functional now in the new space.

Safety Barrier Hand Poured On the Back Road

The important water stream that comes all the way from Wailua Reservoir to San Marga finally reaches Kauai Aadheenam, passing under the road in two places. At this location near the carpentry shop the edge of the road is dangerously close to the stream. We recently had a minor accident where someone backed up and the vehicle tipped sideways into the stream. No one was hurt, but it was a wake-up call. Sadhaka Adinatha built forms and today he and Sadhaka Nilakanthanatha mixed cement and poured the forms.
