Every sun one the Siddidatha Kulam team spends all day starting, planting and amending the soil. The all organic garden feeds the monastic community 365 days a year. With much trail and error Yoginatha Swami and Sadhaka Adinatha have perfected the planting cycles of each plant in the garden. Swami utilizes a master calendar that keeps tract of each plant, how long it is grown, what time of year to plant and the best fertilizer to help the specific plant grow.
Sadhaka Nilakantha is preparing special potting soil that is used to germinate our seeds into small plants.

Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
