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”.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)
All experiences are good experiences, necessary to get us here. Awareness of aspects of ourselves that are constantly changing is a liberating perception, breaking our chains to mundane areas, detaching from instinctive and intellectual to go into superconscious. The greatest challenge facing youth today is the lack of relating to the devotional side of Hinduism. Daily practice, daily vigil, moves us forward spiritually.
