The silpis on their way back to India from Kauai arrived for satsang at the home of Aravindraj in Malaysia. Welcome!
The Pada Puja begins, abhishekam items are poured and arati is performed. It is such a great blessing to be able to perform the padapuja to our satguru!
After the puja, everyone prostrates
The silpis later comment that they feel blessed to be able to attend. They actually sing a song for the satguru, which they often sang while at the aadheenam.
An elder garlands the silpis to honor them. They have done such a wonderful job of building Iraivan Temple. The silpis themselves commented that the experience of building Iraivan Temple was unlike any other and wondered if they would ever get a chance to do something like this again. They spoke about the many blessings they received and prayers that were miraculously answered while they were away from their families to serve our great God Siva on Kauai. Jai to the wonders of Iraivan Temple!
…and jai to the Kailasa Parampara who made this all possible!
Gurudeva teaches that in our tradition there is always pure devotion/bhakti for God but it deepens as we progress as a calm, intelligent expression of love. Theism leads to monism. Behold the light of life through meditation. Perceive one light in everything, everyone. We are That when we reach the last stage of wisdom. Experience that God is Love and then you become that Love.
