The Siddhidata Kulam gave its news today. Sadhaka Nilakantha is off on his third “year in the world” discipline, which is one of the traditions established by Gurudeva for the sadhaka. Every three years they go out into the world for 6 months or a year to live as solitary sadhus working at a job, sometimes settling family matters, living as monks during this time, alone. After three successful cycles they remain in the monastery permanently.
So the SK has more work on their shoulders as Sadhaka did a lot in the garden and managing our fruit harvests.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
