Yogaswami's Mahasamadhi at Kauai Aadheenam

We bring pictures from our arati for Yogaswami yesterday in the Guru peedam where a gold-plated image of our Parameshti Guru is enshrined.

Yogaswami said of his songs called “Natchintanai”

“The songs of Swami Yoganathan
Shall reveal the beauteous Path.
They’ll fill thee with ambrosial bliss
Till you breathe, and crown thee
With the truth of Aham Brahmasmi.”

Yogaswami sang in his famous Natchintanai called “Anma Jnanam”

1. The abode of Wisdom (JnanaVeedu) shall be our gain, If the discipline of charity and austerity, we espouse.

2. Remember the Lord who’s like fragrance in the flower, And thy tongue shall repeat the name of Namasivaya.

3. Serve Him who is Purity and Life of life And thou shalt realise Siva’s grace.

4. The ignorant know not the flowery Feet of God, Invoke Him aloud, before the call of Death.

5. If you surrender yourself entirely at His Feet, He will shelter you like the sweet mother.

Yogaswami's Mahasamadhi Observed in Toronto

&nbsp

We received these photos and testimony from Toronto where Yogaswami’s devotees celebrated his Maha Samadhi yesterday.

Rajamohan writes:

“We are very delighted to share some of the photos taken at Satguru Yogaswamy
Maha Samadhi Pooja observance held at Sangamam Hall, Toronto amidst the presence
of many Yogaswamy devotees.”

&nbsp

We felt the presence of Satguru Yogaswamy and Satguru Bodhinatha Veylan Swamy amongst us with a miraculous occurance.

&nbsp

While the message from Satguru
Bodhinatha Veylan Swamy was being read to the congregation, petals of flowers
from the charam strung around Yogaswamy and Lord Siva fell intermittantly four
times on Satguru Bodhinatha Veylan Swamy’s picture. Many devotees witnessed this
and relished the presence and thoughts of the great Satgurus in astonishment.

&nbsp

It was a very moving experience for all the devotees.

Minimela Building Progress

Our new minimela building is quite impressively larger than we expected.

It’s hard to see inside the main hospitality room which is supported on giant beams. Measuring out at 20 X 22 feet it is nearly 450 square feet of open space to encompass a fairly large group.

We are having about 500 visitors a week. This includes the tour day and counts and endless stream of people coming and going all morning each day.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
