End of a Dynamic Phase

Another dynamic day at the Aadheenam, to finish our short, but very productive 4-day phase.

Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming three-day retreat,
until Dvitya Tithi, Sun One, Wednesday, February 11th.

Thai Pusam, 2009 Is Here!

Tomorrow is the holy day of Thai Pusam. The full moon in the month of Thai, dedicated to Lord Murugan. Here a devotee in Jaffna has a vision of Yogaswami at the holy temple of Nallur in Jaffna, where the presiding Deity is just a Vel in the inner sanctum.

Tomorrow morning at 6:00 we will hold our own Thai Pusam celebration with a homa and abhishekam to Lord Murugan in Kadavul Temple.

Quarterly News Video

For those who haven’t seen it yet, we are posting here again our video covering the news of October, November and December for the three-day retreat. Enjoy!

Ganapati Kulam New Floor Nearly Completed

The Ganapati Kulam gave their report for the phase today. The whole team has been working on the installation of the new floor. Today they completed the last installation of the floor pieces and continued work on the baseboards around the edge of the walls. And lots and lots and lots of cleaning! Concrete dust everywhere!

Sivakatirswami also wrapped up the post-editorial production of Hinduism Today, making the high-resolution PDF’s and sending these off to our printer RR Donnelly in the Mid-West. It is another fascinating issue of the world’s finest Hindu publication.

The front hall way with Kumarswami’s station at the end and counters in front of the windows that look out to Iraivan and Mount Waialeale was finished and counters were reinstalled.

If you want to clean your house, just take it completely apart inside. Next install a new floor and then clean every single wall, surface and object as you put it all back together again!

New Minimela Roof Rafters Up

It is Saturday so the crew working on the new Visitor Info and Library Center are off today. We can see they made good progress yesterday completing the installation of the rafters of the roof.

This new minimela is destined to be the greenest building we have, with solar panels, a small wind mill and other super energy efficient features.

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