Dr. Maruthu from
Malaysia, here on task force, is one of the Iraivan Temple fund
raising team in Malaysia. He set himself and ambitious goal to
create over 1000 key chains for donors to the Iraivan temple
building fund floor stone project.
He has been
working with Kumarswami who helped him prepare 1/4 inch think
wood sheets for use on the Aadheenam’s new Epilog Zing engraving
machine. Sivakatirswami helped him prepare all the files for the
engraving and they have been working hard together for the last
Here if you look very closely you can
see the bright point of light. The laser has finished the
“raster” cutting in of the graphic on top and is not doing
“vector cut thru” of the border of each key chain.. cutting
completely thru the wood.
On the previous pass
it cut the little holes for the key chain to pass thru. Here it
is cutting out the last one on the first row down.
Now it moved up to the
top of the second row….
PDF’s are sent from
the PC to the Epilog machine where they queue up as jobs and
Maruthu runs them after insert a new sheet of wood. A single
sheet takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Almost done with this
one! Only one more to go…
Just lift out the
sheet and the keychains will almost fall out.
Here we have added a lovely key chain.
The look really
Here are all the
different varieties he has made.
Today he completed his goal of over 1000 key chains!
That was done with pure love! That’s by it radiates so much beauty.
We shall all enjoy much more if we do everything with love as these advanced souls teach us.
Respects to them!
Aum Namah Sivaya.
Friends who are fine, positive and good Hindus will help you most of all. It's important for parents of teenagers to know their teenager's friends. Our strength comes from mixing and interacting with others who are practicing sadhana. "The group helps the individual and the individual helps the group."
Pray to Lord Ganesha before beginning work. Turn everything you do into selfless service, seva, karma yoga. Work becomes worship. Hold the perspective of Sivanadiyar that you are the devoted servant of God Siva. "Do everything you do as Sivathondu. Give up this 'I' and mine."
"As you approach God's home, you can feel the spiritual energy, and as you go inside you are engulfed in peace." Trust in and open up to the deity. God is a very subtle presence. The temple and the murti within it are set up so that anyone can feel God's presence once they have enough devotion. Go to the temple and through the sanctified murti see God. Kumbabishekam purifies the temple, infuses divine energy into the murti. The deity, during puja, resides in the murti. Continuous daily worship perpetuates and over the years strengthens the power of the temple.
Be close to God by going to the temple. By shifting our minds to our religion the flow of positive karma is intensified. Being open and receptive receive the blessings of the deity. Bask in the divine energy radiating out from the murti. Creating a strong tie to the temple, perform a sacred act when you return home. Light a lamp in your home shrine; bring the vibration and summon the devas from the temple.
