A beautiful morning with sunshine and light cloud cover. Several Hindu families were present for the morning puja in Kadavul Temple where they received the powerful darshan and blessings of Siva Nataraja.
(Far left) is M. Chellappah and his wife from Kent, U.K. As a boy he grew up in Jaffna, Sri Lanka, and Chellappah remembers being taken by his father on several occasions to visit Saint Yogaswami. Also visiting today from Sunnyvale, CA are Sachin and Madhavi Sankolkar with their two young children, little Sanjana aged four, and three-month old Akshaye (taking a nap). With them, visiting from India, are the children’s grandparents Madan B. and Vijaya M. Satpute from Aurangabad, Maharashtra. All of our guests had heard about the temple from friends and relatives who had previously visited the Aadheenam.
There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
