Brahmachari Mayuran recently advancef from Aspirancy to Supplicancy. During this stage he sits by the Wall of Rain for many hours each day, inwardly begging the devas to help him adjust himself to the monastery, all the while supplicating the monastic order to be accepted as a full-fledged monastic. He will sit here daily for at least a month or more at the discretion of the Guru and then be interviewed by the group of senior monastics. If he is accepted he takes his Postulant Vows and becomes a Sadhaka, making him a full monastic of our community.

Please remove all negative karma and help Brahmachari Mayuran to become a monastic at the Kauai Aadheenam. Please be within him all the time and protect him from all worldly distractions, and kindly lead him to the straight path to merging with Siva. Thank You Ganesha; I love You.—-Nigel Siva

Within our Saiva Siddhanta Holy Scriptures the Saiva Agamas explain the basis of temple ceremonies and worship plus yoga and jnana. The Tirukural was considered by Gurudeva to be "the most accessible and relevant sacred text." In it are practical and helpful guidelines for our conduct in every day life. The point of family life is to gain steady improvement, forever, in self control in the midst of responsibilities in the fulfillment of family dharma. Meanwhile, not taking detachment too far but taking it in the sense of spiritually looking for happiness, not outside in other people or possessions, the world, but inside ourselves and then sharing it with family and friends. "We regard the writings of our satgurus as scripture."

"The temple enables us to feel the presence of God, Gods and devas." We use our inner eyes to see what's going on in the temple, the three worlds. In the temple we're being good dvaitists in the dimfi perspective, focused in bhakti upon God Siva. In meditation we're monists, in the shumif perspective. We claim our oneness with Siva, Sivoham, I am Siva. In surrender, shrinking the ego through devotion, we have a realization that we're not the doer, that Siva is doing it all. Siva's energy comes through our soul.
