Kumara Nataraja, a devotee of Gurudeva’s for forty-one years, traveled 800 miles from his home in Seattle to the Siva Murugan Temple in Concord, California to take a vow, a brahmachariya vrata to remain celibate for the remainder of his life.
He beloved wife recently made her transition to the inner worlds, and Kumar dedicates himself now to spiritual life.
Kulapati Deva Rajan and Kulapati Easan Katir witnessed the ceremony. Gurudeva founded the Concord Temple over twenty years ago.
The local Chettiar community now maintains this popular meeting place of Gods, devas and Saiva souls.
Pujari Narayana Viswanathan Ardhanareeswaran tied the sacred cord around Brahmachari Kumara’s waist and gave his blessings for spiritual work ahead.
