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.
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.
