Today we honored sage Chellappaswami with a special arati in the temple this morning. Our minds pondered with gratitude the gift and presence of the great siddha of Jaffna whose legacy continues on today through our parampara. He said: “Oru Pollapum Illai” “One Evil Thing There is Not!”
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva.

To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
