For many long years, almost 20, the Rajasankara family has managed the Iraivan Temple worksite. All that time they lived a most austere life, raising their two boys in a humble home that was more like a shanty. Gurudeva and the swamis stayed there many times, and great work radiated out from the home. With the new move these past couple of years, that home had to be abandoned and a new one built. After an enormous amount of effort, Jiva and his wife Kanmani have moved into their new manager’s quarters. Congratulations to the entire family for making this manifest so Iraivan can continue its march toward completion.

"Namaste" and "vanakkam," core practices of greeting. Recognizing that God is within everyone, the same God within me is within you. A Hindu concept not necessarily believed by other religions. Bowing to God is one of the ways we strengthen our humility and lessen our sense of ego and pride.
For peace in the world stop the war in the home." The key to world peace is inside the individual. The most important thing I can do today is be peaceful. Harmony, peace and tolerance radiate out to the community from the home and from the Hindu temple. "Everything is all right, right now." Affirmation is a useful tool to move out of a disturbed state of mind. Practice being in the eternal now.
