This morning, when Rajen Manick sent us the photos you are about to see, we could hardly believe our eyes. There was the Spiritual Park that Gurudeva founded in 1986 (Yes, 35 years ago). But it was not the land we have grown accustomed to in our mind's eye, a bustling seven acres full of hundreds and thousands of devotees plying the paths, lighting the lamps, offering their love and flowers. That space suddenly was silent, calm, somehow eternal. And so architecturally rich. The members and donors have spent the last few years building three major mandapams, all wood and thatch, spaces for classes on Saiva Siddhanta, for festivals and dance recitals and musical moments. Some of the monks (really, this happened) saw the images on our Big Screen and asked, "Where is that place?" so different it seemed than our memory. We offer you a 27-slide view of the Spiritual Park, Covid-19 style. You can explore more about its founding and mission here:
