Iraivan's Silver Naga Arrives

Today we are blessed to receive the Iraivan Sivalingam's silver naga. Hundreds of emails back and forth from the contributors to the monks about details, shipping, design and whether it could be shipped under a religious object status all had to be worked out over the past several months.

It's here finally and its future will unfold in the coming days.

The Ganapati Kulam had breakfast with long-time devotees to the monastery, Sunder and Rupinder Arora from Ottawa, Canada. This morning's meeting was on their 33rd wedding anniversary. Sunder and Rupinder have been visiting the monastery every year since 2001! The group had an insightful time discussing current projects, and also had the chance to talk about Sunder's book, Ushering in Heaven. Here is an excerpt from Chapter 3, Awareness: "I am often asked, "Is technology bad? Should we go back to the simplified life of the past?" In the final analysis, technology is neither good nor bad. It is like music; its quality depends on the player. You can either create a symphony or noise. This same technology in the hands of an awakening person can help speed up his or her spiritual growth." The book is available on Amazon

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