Sadhakas and Yogis are officially known as “Postulants” in our monastic order. Their vows are taken for two years at a time and renewed in July or January each year.
Today eight of our monastics renewed their vows for another two years.
They all read together their sacred pledges of Purity, Obedience, Humility and Confidentiality, known in Tamil as: Tirikarannasutti, Taalvu Enum Tanmai, Pannivu, Rahasiyam.
Sadhaka Haranandinatha, Sadhaka Adinatha, Sadhaka Nilakantha, Sadhaka Tejadevanatha, Sadhaka Satyanatha, Sadhaka Nandinatha, Sadhaka Rajanatha and Yogi Jothinatha have all vowed to continue their life of service and dedication in Lord Muruga’s Army of the Within, as Gurudeva used to call his monks.
Jai to the brave souls who lay down the personal lives to serve and realize God Siva! And thanks to Gurudeva and Bodhinatha for being there for all of us!
What is happening in the world is supposed to be happening, not because God wants it to happen but because man created it. There is no advantage, as a normal citizen, to get disturbed by violence in the world. Impact your own sphere of influence by being a peaceful person, radiating compassion and concern for others. Take responsibility, realizing karma is the source, our creation, attracting the people we encounter, the experiences we go through.
