Today the Siddhidata Kulam gave their report. Yoginathaswami is working hard on documenting in the new maintenance program details of key equipment that his team has to maintain, all the parts and sources. He is also coordinating remotely the Iraivan temple carving work going on in India.

The rest of the team reports that the early planting of summer crops is coming up and we will soon have lots of things like Lady Fingers (okra) and other vegetables. They have also been working on the new upgrade to the front entrance way by harvesting some of our marvelous lumber bamboo for railings.

Maha Sivaratri Celebrations in Kopay

The Sri Subramuniya Kottam organized the Maha Sivaratri celebration this year. The celebrations began on the morning before the great night of Lord Siva. Devotees assembled at the Katpaga Pillaiyar Temple in Kopay at 8:30 am for puja.

After the puja, devotees carried paal kudam (milk pots) with the sacred bilva leaves in a procession lead by a Naathaswaram and Thavil musical ensemble to the Sri Shanti Lingam temple.

The devotee’s paal kudams were used for the abhishekam of Sri Shanti Lingam which Gurudeva had installed.

The Sivachariyas have performed a Homam and Abhishekam to Sri Shanthi Lingam.

The ceremonies ended at 12:30 pm. After that the prasadam was served to all the devotees. Then pujas resumed again in the evening, all through the night until early next morning.
