Recent Siddhidatta Kulam Projects

The Siddhidatta Kulam has been making great deals of progress with the extra assistance they've had over the last month. Many large and small projects are being completed. Following are photos of a small amount of what they've been doing.

Repairing Redwood in the Courtyard

Over the last few days, Dasan Mahadevan has been working tirelessly to repair the termite-damaged pillars in the monastery's courtyard. The courtyard is where the monks have lunch everyday and much of it's woodwork dates back to the early 1900's. The redwood pillars suffered termite damage to their surfaces long ago and have since been in need of a touch-up. Dasan has been filling the holes, artfully scraping the white filler to match the wood, and then he has painted them with a final coat of paint.

A New Laser Printer

Recently, the Pillayar Kulam received and installed their new laser printer. For a number of years, the kulam has been using a smaller laser printer primarily to cut and etch wooden products for the Mini Mela gift shop. This new laser printer can cut much thicker, broader and longer pieces, making for a wider variety of potential uses.

November 8th Homa

Following three days of retreat, the monks began the new phase this morning with the usual havana in Kadavul Temple. This phase will be six days long, with Ardra Abhishekam taking place on Sun 2 and a tour day on Sun 5.

"God is with you all the time. There is no work to be done. Move in conformity with changes within your environment. Be steadfast in truth. Natural forces are countless. Be you, your own self, while at the same time recognizing all these. That is wisdom. We do not do anything. Everything happens of its own accord." Siva Yogaswami
