Iraivan’s Perimeter Wall Progress

As a container is slowly being loaded for shipping to Kauai, the Rajashankaras snapped some close-up shots of the carving detail.

Beginning the New Phase

The new lunar week has just begun for the monks, and happens to be aligned with the rest of the world's standard workweek for the time being. The morning began with a warm sunrise which lit up the treetops and Mount Waialeale.

The monks gathered in Kadavul for the morning homa to begin their week in sync with the Devas and Mahadevas who guide our work. Satguru has returned from his travels and was their to oversee the homa and to offer a delightful upadesha about the intellect, following the event.

"It is not a simple thing to control the mind. It cannot be done in a day, or even in a year. Through constant effort thoughts can be controlled a little. In this way the uncontrollable mind can finally be brought under control. This is the supreme victory." Siva Yogaswami

Satguru’s New Publisher’s Desk

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami reads his editorial from the July/August/September 2016 edition of Hinduism Today magazine. "It is easy to talk high philosophy in Hinduism, 'man is God,' 'we are divine,' it is easy to say profound things...however to put these principles into practice to the extent that we really are a more spiritual person, that is the challenge. And that, is what we will explore here."

An Update from Our Bangaluru Carving Site

Aum Sivaya everyone, we have just received these photos from Iraivan's carving site in India. The silpis are working hard to finish the perimeter wall and Nandi Mandapam stone pieces.
