Our 2017 Guru Purnima

The Saiva Siddhanta Church family, filled with monks and devotees from around the world, gathered this morning to worship our Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami--the one time of year we can perform such an elaborite ritual for him. We had devotees fly in from Turkey, Malaysia, San Francisco, San Diego and Canada to offer themselves to Bodhinatha and rededicate their spiritual striving for another year.

Bodhinatha Speaks on Lord Murugan and Penance


Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas - Who is Lord Murugan, Proper Approach to Penance
Who is Lord Murugan? Path to Siva, Lesson 27, Commentary Who is Lord Murugan? Path to Siva, Lesson 27, Commentary

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.

Path to Siva, Lesson 27.
