Under the auspices of Lord Muruga’s shakti of yogic striving and monasticism, three bright souls joined us today. They have been begging entrance at the wall for many weeks, attuning themselves to the inner vibration of our order.
Bodhinatha reaches up for the power of the Parampara before every initiation.
Acharya Kumarswami carefully guides the process. He reads from our Sacred Vows book along with the three Sivanadiyars.
All are very focused. It is a great moment.
Sivanadiyar Rajan, a cheerful presence and a strong soul in service of Siva.
Sivanadiyar Tandava reads his vows. He has exemplary humility and is a dedicated meditator.
Sivanadiyar Nandi has wonderfully absorbed the refinements of our Tamil Saivite culture, in minute detail.
Follow Gurudeva's teachings in a serious way; take up a daily vigil, sandhyavandana, worshiping at the change of days. It takes time to change and master our character, soften the ego, purify the subconscious. Welcome correction from the living guru. Be on the spiritual path, the path of change. The challege of daily sadhana lifts up energy and the instinctive and intellectual mind don't strengthen unknowlingly.
