Dr. Narayana Rao and his wife met with Hinduism Today Indian correspondent Rajiv Malik in New Delhi to discuss their collaborations with the monastery.
Each year Palaniswami creates four new graphic AUMs for the covers of Hinduism Today. Today we get a glimpse of his work.
This is a photo from the Big Island from Holly Young. She is an amazing bronze sculptor. We have commissioned her to do our very first bronze. This is a preliminary crafting of it. It is 30 inches long, 18 inches wide and 15 inches high, and is destined to be held in the giant hand of Lord Hanuman when he arrives from India. You will see more of this project as it evolves.
The Hanuman is even bigger than the Dakshinamurthi we have in the gardens!
Today we bring you a special treat. A series of stunning island photos.
That is SO beauty-full. THANK YOU! We are taught that money is ‘that which flows’. Having pictures of water so closely related to the words really helped anchor Gurudeva’s message. What a wonder-full tribute to Gurudeva on Chitra puja – He from whom SO much flows with Love and Grace! Once again, thank you! Aum AUM
Thankyou soo much !!! I was just wondering about credits/debts since two days.. and wondering if its a violation of yama.. and today i have the answer 🙂
Thank you very very much..

Jai Gurudeva !!!
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.
