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!
Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being.
