Tomorrow is the holy day of Thai Pusam. The full moon in the month of Thai, dedicated to Lord Murugan. Here a devotee in Jaffna has a vision of Yogaswami at the holy temple of Nallur in Jaffna, where the presiding Deity is just a Vel in the inner sanctum.
Tomorrow morning at 6:00 we will hold our own Thai Pusam celebration with a homa and abhishekam to Lord Murugan in Kadavul Temple.
For our "Great Departure" we prefer to be at home in a religious, uplifting environment, in a clear minded high state of consciousness, having resolved all differences and fulfilled all obligations. There is nothing to fear: "Death is a blissful, light filled transition." We then get settled in the inner worlds with like-minded people of similar religious beliefs.
