Last phase brought some very special guests to the Aadheenam. Traveling all the way from the Island of Mauritius, Kulapati Sivakumaren & Kulamata Kavita with their children (from left to right) Dipa, Jayendra & Basanti. They are very involved in supporting the Spiritual Park in Mauritius. Basanti and Dipa love to come to Kauai for a break and work in the mini mela here at Kauai Aadheenam. Kulapati Deva Seyon hosted them.
The Mardemootoos are traveling with their dear friends from Malaysia, Dato Vijay Eswaran and his wife Umayal.
Dato and Umayal are major contributors to the building of Iraivan Temple and have supported the monks in many ways over the years. They also have a beautiful home on Kauai overlooking the valley, mountains and ocean.
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
