We send on to you the blessings flowing from the Summa Iru Walking Meditation Garden Siva Nataraja outdoor shrine on the slope of the world’s most active volcano to Bodhinatha’s blessed Lotus Feed on this most auspicious day.
Our shrine is situated among the rudrakshas gifted by Kauai Aadheenam.
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
