The Siddhidata Kulam gave their report today. Yoganathaswami continues to work on the drawings and planning for the earthwork around Iraivan as well as a comprehensive plan for the entire Aadheenam electrical systems in order to provide the county with data necessary to get permits to upgrade. The rest of his kulam has been busy with the routines, garden, repairs and continuing emphasis on repairing our pools and stream bed while the Wailua Reservoir is still shut down for repairs.
This if from the outside the Siddhidata Kulam office. Yoginathswami writes:
“Summer is here for sure in Kauai Aadhenam. Many of our flowering plants are blooming now. Here are the Amaryllises in full bloom. Some of these flowers are almost 10 inches diameter.”
Beautiful Amaryllis blooms flowering in the Summer – in the East coast and in the UK they bloom in the winter in February/March. It is truly a delight to see such lovely flowers in the Iraivan Temple grounds. It is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for sharing!
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world.
