Three sishya advanced today on the spiritual path of San Marga, taking their Vishesha Diksha vows on this very auspicious Guru Purnima day. Ravi Visswanathan, Sheela Visswanathan and Uma Tandavan, pledged themselves in service and dedication to the mission of the Kailasa Paramapara and received the initiation to begin daily Saiva Atmartha Puja. This is both the culmination of years of preparation and the beginning of a new stage of spiritual practice -- kriya and raja yoga -- for these devotees. The Vishesha Diksha also marks full membership in Saiva Siddhanta Church.
