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.
Religion is the working together of the beings in the three worlds. The first way we actually experience something of a divine nature, the power and energy in a temple, is our sensitized feeling nature. The Saivite beings in the inner world, Deities, saints, sages, devas, guide and govern, help and protect, shower forth blessings and inspirations to the members of our religious family. All worship Siva.
