August Chitra Puja

Last night, the monastery celebrated the chitra nakshatra with our monthly padapuja to Gurudeva's granite tiruvadi in Kadavul temple. Natyam Rajanatha and Sadhaka Jayanatha performed the abhishekam for Bodhinatha, the monks and members to observe in silent contemplation. Gurudeva's loving energy permeated the temple and the hearts and minds of those present. Jai Gurudeva! Aum Namah Sivaya!

The following poem is from an Indian devotee who watches TAKA and loves the pada puja slideshows.

We gather at his feet
like the many different flowers
each one unique
each one true
so many colors, so many forms
some in full bloom
another just a bud
when will it unfold?

each has lived
for just that moment
instant and eternal
when all is surrendered
all is done
all is offered in gratitude

short or long, a mere illusion
a life fully lived
is all that has happened
each trial experienced
each lesson learned
each smile treasured
each word measured

we gather at his feet
we meet
in that hallowed space
filled with his grace
and then we return
to live, to serve
to claim his legacy
do we truly deserve!

Infinite love and eternal gratitude

Aum Namah Sivaya!
