The vibration is very high at the Aadheenam as the auspicious Guru Purnima day approaches. Rajen Manick writes from Mauritius:
I am happy to wish Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami a happy Guru Purnima 2009.
I am really blessed to be always guided by Bodhinatha in my life to fulfill both my family obligations and my seva to our Church.
I have just started learning graphics with photography last week and I am sending Bodhinatha my very first attempt to creative photography using special effects. It is not really perfect but I am happy to created something different with Bodhinatha’s photo and feel inwardly good about this first trial. See photo attached.
The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. "Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe." When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.
