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.
What is Sivatri and the Nature of Nirvikalpa Samadhi
Mahasivaratri: A time of striving to realize Parasiva. In our teachings yoga is the restraint of mental activity (chitta vritti). Nivritti marga-the path of renunciation. Pravritti marga-the path of action or life in worldly society. Ashrama dharma, a mental resting place within the 4 ashramas in life. The day before the new moon, as in monthly Sivaratri, nivritti energy is strong, an excellent time for austerity and meditation. Six Shum words defined related to meditation-withdrawal: kashum, nikashum, shumnikashum, bishumnikashum, abibishumnikashum, haiiaiibishumnikashum. Drawing energy up in to the transcendental Source of energy. Imkaif: Absence of awareness aware of itself. Nonexperience.
