A Visiting Priest from the Concord Temple

Yesterday, the monks enjoyed the presence of Narayana Viswanathan Ardhanareeswaran from the Concord Siva Murugan Temple in California. Narayana is originally from Erode, Tamil Nadu. He first served as a priest at the Sri Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple in Kaspa Pasur, Erode, Tamil Nada and started serving the Concord Siva Murugan Temple back in 2002. While here he attended Siva puja at Kadavul Temple, and enjoyed a private tour of Iraivan Temple given by the monks.

Visitors on Tour Day

Today was tour day and in His ever mirific style, Siva arrived in a multitude of forms to visit His temple. As Gurudeva said, "Every form is a form of Siva." Move your mouse left and right to see the scope of this pano shot.

Meditation Hut Installed

Nirvani Adinatha has just completed a major side-project that he worked on here and there on his days off from normal duties. Nirvani is an excellent carpenter and can methodically build structures from scratch with relative ease. Let's walk through the installation of our new redwood meditation hut.

Cleaning Lord Shanmukha

Today was Ashram Sadhana day in the Aadheenam. Consequently, many areas and many items were cleaned by the monks, including Lord Muruga in the form of Shanmukha beneath our large banyan tree on Thiruneri. Task forcers Dean and Kodiswara teamed up and gave Him a good cleaning and oiling. This murti is about nine feet (2m 75cm) tall, so it was quite a job on their part.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
