Electrical Trench Reaches The New Inside Take Off Station

The Maha Electrical Upgrade saga continues. From the incoming feed from wall the trench continued all the way to the interior of the Aadheenam. On the wall to the left under the tarp there will be all the switch boxes and fuse panels to send electricity here and there throughout the Aadheenam. The main terminal end here underground.

Everything must be set perfectly in place. This station will remain open for a while until all the wire is pulled through and connected.

Then Swamiji went to the Media lab. Here he is being introduced to our Agama digitization project by Arumugaswami who had just completed a thirty-minute interview with him.

Sadasiva Artwork Gifted to Aadheenam

We have known Arthur Brownstein and his wife Nutan for decades. Nutan’s father is the famed Indra Sharma who has since gone to Siva’s Feet, but had done many paintings for the Aadheenam years ago, including marvelous portraits of Gurudeva and Yogaswami.

Indra’s son, Chandra Sharma and his daughter, Veena, Nutan’s sister here behind the painting, are also artists. Chandra Sharma’s is considered one of India’s top contemporary artists.

This painting of Sadasiva was commissioned to be used for a future cover of Hinduism Today. Chandra Sharma kindly did the work for free as a contribution to the cause.

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