We count the years of our life together beginning with Gurudeva founding the Subramuniya Ashram in Alaveddy, Sri Lanka, shortly after he was initiated by Siva Yogaswami. The power of the lineage was passed on to the being of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami and from him to Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.
Through six decades that great spark has grown and manifested today as Kauai Aadheenam. With its small band of dedicated, loyal monks who have sacrificed their lives to serve the Parampara, who have stuck with it, “through thick and thin…” Supported by a small band of devoted and steadfast sishya, from Kauai Aadheenam the message of the Kailasa Parampara has reached out and touched the hearts, minds and souls of hundreds of thousands the world over.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
