Ayudha Puja at the Iraivan Temple Carving Site

November Ayudhya Puja at the Iraivan Temple Carving Site

Ayudha Puja is an important event for all stone works. We have special prayers for the tools, machinery and vehicles. It is also a joyous day for all the silpis because they receive their dakshina (bonus) and a set of new clothing as gifts. Here is a cut stone for the perimeter wall. All markings have been done and are ready to start the new phase. Traditionally, the first stone for a new project is blessed on this day.

Many Great Responses to the New Website

Just back from my first visit to the New website and I am surfing on giant waves of joy and gratitude. So much thought and care and inspiration on each page, each word, each letter ... WOW!!!

How blessed are we to be alive at this time in eternity when such precious gifts are placed right at our fingertips! How blessed are we to be alive at this place, in virtual space, where pictures, movies, talks and songs are just one click away!

So rich in content, so elegant in design, so simple in presentation and yet, gently holds aloft that secret of secrets for him to reach who does sincerely seek it!

Unimaginable is the extent of care, immeasurable the depth of patience, uncountable the minutes of labor, limitless focus and persistence, Role models are you, in all that you do!
How blessed are we, to have our lives touched so by you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Infinite love and eternal gratitude

Aum Namah Sivaya!
