Yesterday Bodhinatha, Shanmuganathswami, Siddhanathaswami and Sadhaka Mayuranatha hosted a pizza lunch with all our Wailua Mission members who are so diligently serving here at Kauai Aadheenam at our Minimela Information center. By some counts the visitor traffic sometimes climbs to 3000 visitors each month. These are not all coming on a single day, but a steady stream of daily traffic, all of whom pass through our Minimela center where they are served by these shining faces and these sishya spend hours behind the counter taking care of everyone’s needs.
Thanks to all these sishya and to all the sishya around world who are performing Sivathondu, sacrificing and tithing time, many hours each week without fail for the mission of the Kailasa Paramapara. Week after week, month after month, year after year. These are the strong souls we know we can depend on! And we know there a many more than in this picture in our various missions around the world.
Mahalo and Nandri to The Servants of the Servants of Siva!
Jai Ganesa!! I second that!!!.They are truly the best examples of Siva Thondar. Thank you all very much. I learn so much from all of you. May you always have every need met and remain as lovely as you are for all of us, near and far who need you.Aum Shanti Toshadevi
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.
