Countless expressions of appreciation and wonderment to the monks poured forth from this beautiful group. The most frequently asked question of the day: “How do 21 monks create all this with all the programs and daily routines you just mentioned? ”
We had several guests with engineering backgrounds who studied at U.C. Berkeley. Dr. Mehta’s contribution and work on the fly ash foundation was very well received and appreciated by this group of alumni!
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.
