After getting up at 4 AM and taking a long flight, Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami arrived safe and sound.
As soon as he drove up light showers fell to bless us all.
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Dasami Tithi, Sun One, Friday, June 10th.
Pada puja at the temple.
Arriving monks always go to Kadavul for arati and blessings from Lord Ganesha, Lord Muruga and Lord Nataraja, welcoming them home.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
