Aum, aum, aum. Thank you for posting this. Reading about the man-hours involved in manifesting a hand-carved temple is not nearly as impressive as seeing and hearing the work. I feel truly blessed to be able to observe the incremental progress in real time.
Aum Namah Sivaya!
"Adjust yourself to the realization that you are a divine being, a self-effulgent, radiant being of light."
Jyoti is the Sanskrit word for inner light. To bestow on devotees terms that were more specific, Gurudeva developed the Shum Language of Meditation. In Shum the word for the light that lights up the mind is balikana. During Shum meditation there is an indrawing of forces to realize balikana, a moon-like glow, leading to iftye a deeper kind of inner light which, in turn, leads to milinaka, a sustained iftye which doesn't go away and can be sustained after we've finished our meditation.
