Today at noon we celebrated Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami with our monthly pada puja during the chitra nakshatra. In Kadavul Temple Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami and his monks gathered with local members for an abhishekam. While the monks chanted Sri Rudram Natyam Mayuranatha and Nirvani Tejadevanatha performed the puja, pouring pranic substances such as milk, honey and citrus over Gurudeva's black granite tiruvadi. Following a final arati, the event ended with singing and with each attendee prostrating before the shrine, with an opportunity for everyone to then sit in worshipful silence. Jai Gurunathan. Aum Namah Sivaya.
Recently one of the monastery's many Muruga bhaktars cleaned and oiled Lord Shanmukha.
This great Mahadeva is worshiped in all parts of India and the world. Also known as Murugan, Kumara, Skanda, Shanmukhanatha, Subramanya and more. He is the God who guides that part of evolution which is religion, the transformation of the instinctive into a divine wisdom through the practice of yoga. He holds the holy Vel of jnana shakti which is His Power to vanquish darkness or ignorance.
The tile at Kadavul Temple has recently been replaced thanks to the hard work of our head groundskeeper Doug and overseen by Yoginathaswami and the Siddhidata Kulam.
This tile has had a few years of rough weather and took too much moisture underneath the surface and started to pop up tile by tile.
