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”.
Sun One, Feb. 16, 2015Understanding keys to the mind and transformation. Kriya, the yoga of action, comprised of tapas, svadhyaya and Ishvara pranayama. Living in the soul nature; attenuating the kleshas. Detaching from the world. Giving up attractions and aversions, limitations, clinging to life, wanting to be finite and ignorant. Ignorance is thrown off when we stop looking outside. Warming up to the idea of being omnipresent and all knowing.
