New Gurudeva Photo Display in Kadavul

Happy Chitra Nakshatra! After 22 years, we have replaced the trusty, conventional lightbox that has displayed Gurudeva's photos at his shrine in Kadavul Temple. The technology was old school. Each month a monk stepped up on the shrine, opened the box, pulled out the plexiglass sandwich and inserted a new transparency. The new box houses a high grade digital screen that will rotate through many high quality images every three hours, while drawing a similar amount of power as the old unit. Kumarnathaswami and Kanda Alahan teamed up on the project. It was Kanda and his sons who had built the original version in their California cabinet shop.

    Aum Nama Sivaya!
    Thank you Swamis for sharing this post and the outstanding work of the Monks and Akash! Reminds me of the rotating Lord Nadarajah at the LOTUS Shrine at the Satchidananda Ashram, Yogaville,Buckingham, VA, USA, which I visited on September 10, 2011, and prayed at the Samadhi Shrine of Swami Satchinanda.
    Sivaya Nama Aum!
