Our host, Kulapati Deva Seyon writes the captions for our tour days:
“Meeting initially in the Banyan Mandapam guests get a basic introduction to Kauai Aadheenam, the life of a monk, our founder, our current Satguru, Iraivan Temple, and a brief introduction to Saiva Siddhanta and our publications. We had a huge group, possibly nearly 80 people came.”
It is not so much what they hear but what they feel that makes the tour special for each guest. Almost without exception they leave feeling they have touched something sacred, something immeasurable.
Everywhere they look they see the great inner plane Beings who protect and guide this monastery.
One thing that makes Iraivan so special is that it is surrounded by endless gardens, groves, ponds, sacred plants, fish and streams. All of that guided and protected by illumined monks under vows. Is there many such places on earth?
Some have called Kauai Aadheenam “the range of light”.
For our "Great Departure" we prefer to be at home in a religious, uplifting environment, in a clear minded high state of consciousness, having resolved all differences and fulfilled all obligations. There is nothing to fear: "Death is a blissful, light filled transition." We then get settled in the inner worlds with like-minded people of similar religious beliefs.
