Prostrations to the holy feet of our great Lord Shiva!
hope all is well in Kauai! I want to start by saying that I have received several gifts recently. One was a new camera. This I brought to the Spiritual Park today and wanted to share the experience with you.
What a day it was! As we do every year, there is a special prayer done for children, students to help them have success in the upcoming exams. But this year was astounding! The number of children, people, that attended was staggering to say the least. My guess is 6,000 but I really have no idea. I tried to capture it in the pictures as best as I could. The gifts of flowers were in abundance and you will see how even the large size of our Pancha Ganapati looked laden with offerings.
The energy was so high that the hanging lamp above Ganesha’s head was swinging as if there was a strong breeze, although there was none where the light hung. Now let me tell you about the letters to be burnt in the homa, although the pictures tell the story. Simply said, I have NEVER seen that many.
The meditation was amazing in the sound of silence that a body of people that size created. Besides a few babies, you would think there were only around 10 people on the property.
The day was one I will never forget, nor will I ever take for granted my blessed karma of sitting at the feet of Ganesha on this life changing day.

Prostrations to the holy feet of Lord Shiva! Prostrations to the holy feet of Lord Ganesha!
Thank you Mauritius Spiritual Park for sharing the news and activities on the net. It is really amazing to see Lord Ganesha in his shrine giving the blessing the his devotees and children and student that are going to participate in the exams. For those student I will say Best of Luck and before they start any paper just think of Lord Ganesha as he is the remover of obstacles and he will take all the fear inside you….
I am so pleased that despite being away, I am blessed to get the darshan of Lord Ganesha and I feel so peace and tranquility in his abode.
Keep posting the news and feedback.

Within our Saiva Siddhanta Holy Scriptures the Saiva Agamas explain the basis of temple ceremonies and worship plus yoga and jnana. The Tirukural was considered by Gurudeva to be "the most accessible and relevant sacred text." In it are practical and helpful guidelines for our conduct in every day life. The point of family life is to gain steady improvement, forever, in self control in the midst of responsibilities in the fulfillment of family dharma. Meanwhile, not taking detachment too far but taking it in the sense of spiritually looking for happiness, not outside in other people or possessions, the world, but inside ourselves and then sharing it with family and friends. "We regard the writings of our satgurus as scripture."

Tirukural, Introduction and Contents
Tirukural, Chapter 15 Possession of Self-Control
"The temple enables us to feel the presence of God, Gods and devas." We use our inner eyes to see what's going on in the temple, the three worlds. In the temple we're being good dvaitists in the dimfi perspective, focused in bhakti upon God Siva. In meditation we're monists, in the shumif perspective. We claim our oneness with Siva, Sivoham, I am Siva. In surrender, shrinking the ego through devotion, we have a realization that we're not the doer, that Siva is doing it all. Siva's energy comes through our soul.
