New Phase Begins at the Aadheenam

Yogi Jivanandanatha is our homa pujari today as we begin a new phase.

Bodhinatha gave a wonderful discourse based on his Tirukkural presentation he made in Singapore, focusing on the issue of back-biting and the understanding that what we react strongly to in others is something present in our own psyche that we need to pay attention to.

Kulapati Easan Katir has come to the Aadheenam for 10 days of Task Force. Kulapati just recently returned from Washington DC where he joined the Hindu American Foundation in an effort to speak to our representatives about Hindu human rights in several countries.

Bodhinatha gave a wonderful talk to an appreciate and attentive crowd from a different perspective about how to succeed in life with religious and spiritual tools/practices as a guide.

A section of the seminar participants. They’re about 400 people attended this seminar. Many of them braved a heavy downpour at downtown Kuala Lumpur!

There are many new participants attended this seminar. Noticeable among them are many non-Indian brothers & sisters whom had participated as well took part with great interest. They enthusiastically followed Bodhinatha’s talk till the end.

Chipping Away at Iraivan

At Iraivan today the entire six-man silpi team is working together. Here Karuppiah works on the hand railing.

It is made of 38 stones, and it's quite a feat to fit them so perfectly.

Chitaiya is also on the same hand rail.

Fitting each piece individually.

So there are no visible seams.

Lokesh works on the flooring tiles.

In fact, the floor is coming along quickly at this point.

Here you can see the floor on the left of the sanctum.

Andiappan works on the rose-granite tiles.

On the way to take these photos, the photographer stumbles on this Oncidium orchid in full blooom…

And the exotic Bat's Ears, which are just opening.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
