End of Phase

We come to the end of another phase of activities with all mission fronts moving forward dynamically. Inner and outer striving, everyone working on themselves on the inside and with each other on the outside, Bodhinatha leading the way and Gurudeva guiding us from within, such a wonderful path is this Saiva Neri path.

Dr. Manickavel in Chidambaram is translating a book called “Yogaswami” which tells of Yogaswami’s life. Manickavel sent this to us the other day.

Thuravikalin Thiruvatikalukku Vanakkam.
Sending the attachment of the Next chapter Darshan of Vivekananda and Guru 5 doc.

Please allow me to jump to the last page of the book.

“We all belong to one religion and caste.
There is no difference among us.
We are pure and remain in God.
Differences and different changes are peculiar nature of Truth.
Elders says it is Maya.
Only those who conduct themselves in ara neri (ethical/Dharma) realize this truth, others will not understand.
It is repeatedly emphasized that we treat all life as our own life.
So, everything rests in discipline.
Stay in ara neri and think all are I and progress though wonderful experiences.
You will realize that, you are not the materialistic physical body but intelligent mental body and beyond.”

I could not resist sharing this rare gems, which I had never come across.

Thuravikalukku Mikka Nandri.

Thiruchirtrampalam.
We remain in the service of Aatheenam,
Adiyaen Manickavel.

Gurudeva's Spiritual Visions

Every year, for Mahasamadhi, we prepare a gift to both Gurudeva and his devotees. This year one of the gifts was a jewel of a book, straight from the inner planes.

Using text from the upcoming biography of seven of the Kailasa Parampara gurus, we assembled beautiful art and never-before-seen photos to create a loving tribute to our Satguru.

This is a photo of Gurudeva after he had just returned to America, Yogaswami's slap on his back still resonating in all three worlds. See a wonderful slideshow below. Jai Gurudeva! We thank you with all our heart.
