This morning Mahaswamiji and his team pack up all their things, loaded the cars and then came to the Aadheenam for a last goodbye before driving off to the airport.
Mahaswamiji first came to Kadavul and personally put a garland on Lord Nataraja and did an arati, then came to the Guru Peetham to say good bye to Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.
These past four days have been a joyous satsang and an awesome spiritually uplifting experience to have this confluence of our two lineages. Mahaswamiji and his traveling team are in love with Kauai and had a good break before moving on the their rigorous travel schedule in the months ahead that take them to San Franscisco, then Dallas, other points in the US then off to UK.
Thank you Mahaswamiji for all the blessings you brought with your from our beloved India and for your wisdom and spiritual light!
The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. "Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe." When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.
