Sadhaka Satyanatha has been working on a project for several years which has been the digitization of our entire physical photo collection. Most of this is complete, but it will take a long time to go through all the files to see what we have. He found these precious pictures of one of Yogaswami’s chief disciples: Markanduswami.
Here we are in Jaffna, on an innersearch long ago, meeting this completely renounced tapasvin ascetic.
Markanduswami had a special gift and a special sadhana: He only spoke out the words of his Guru, Yogaswami.
Feel very Inspired by seeing this picture.
What a blessing!
What a great penance to have performed to be born like him.
Look at his matted hair… Awesome.
So majestic tapasvin.
I prostrate at your feet Markanduswami.
Great Souls amongst our mist. What a blessing!
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
