Yogaswami's Home in Sri Lanka

Everyone is inspired to be seeing the locations in Sri Lanka where our Parampara lived. Sivayogapathy from Toronto sends us photos today of Yogaswami’s Samadhi in Columbuthurai. (Note: we are not exactly sure of the locations of the shrines shown in each photo….)

This is the shrine with Yogaswami’s Thiruvadi. His ashes are buried in the ground underneath the shrine.

This room contains his bed and wheelchair

Moving on to the Sivathondan Nilaiyam which Yogaswami founded as his center in Jaffna.

Cows are enjoying the shade here an live in peace.

Another one of our friends in the area.

    Siva Siva! The shrine with Yogaswami’s Thiruvadi and the Samathi Temple bring instant spiritual connection with him and the lineage after him. What a beautiful shrine to such a great Swami – we are indeed very fortunate to be able to see it from our own home. Having read the following text a year ago and most recently again about him I feel a spiritual chill going thru my entire body! What an immense joy! My deep gratitude to the contributor from Toronto and the Hindu Monastery. Following is an excerpt from the Seychelles Temple website: 1910 Pada Yatra to Kataragama: “The pious host welcomed him home most lovingly, gave him a warm water bath, clothed him in a new verti and shawl, and fed him. After a day’s rest, Swami left for Jaffna by train, the fare being paid by the overseer. The kith and kin of Swami were overwhelmed with joy on seeing him alive for, after he went missing for six long months they had taken him for dead and even performed his last rites.”
