Reminder – Our Devotees Hold Ekadasa Rudra Homa on the 26th

Ekarudra Homa, Malaysia

A reminder to all that Saiva Siddhanta Tiruchabai, Malaysia devotees will conduct, Ekadasa Rudra Homa in November 26th, 2016, in Kajang. Ekadasa Rudra Homa is the chanting of Sri Rudram for 11 rounds and mystically meaningful form of worship of Lord Siva, the very source of cosmic energy for entire creation. Shiva has eleven forms of Rudra and in this Homa all the 11 Rudras are worshiped. It is considered to be one of the most powerful and effective among homas performed in the world. Sri Rudram occupies a central role in vedic literature and in the practice od Sanathana Dharma. The Yajur Veda decrees that Sri Rudram Homa acts to shield the world from harm and negativities of all kind. By performing this homa in the strict and traditional way, complete with high-minded intentions, the world and individuals in it will be protected and rewarded. The event is open to the public. Please join us!

Final Day of Maha Samadhi

Some highlights of the final day. October 28th.

A devotee was reflecting in the days moving toward Mahasamadhi this year, reflecting on Gurudeva's words that he had only one power, the ability to transform lives. If a shishya needed one siddi in her satguru, that would be it. Thinking thus, she penned this little ode to Gurudeva:

Only someone as true as Gurudeva could be so humble and silent about something so massive …

What a lesson in
standing in truth
irrespective of what others are doing
standing tall
resisting the temptation to flaunt
standing strong
responding only to love

O! Gurudeva
How much have I
to learn from you,
of you …

I rejoice and bask
in the joy
of having my breath touched
by one as rare as you!
O Gurudeva!
What could I do without you?!!
Infinite love and eternal gratitude
Aum Namah Sivaya!.

Sivaya Subramuniyaswami Mahasamadhi Celebrations Mega-Post

Today we are going to bring you days two through five of the mahasamadhi ceramonies and classes. The week was truly a special one, starting each day off with a puja to Gurudeva followed by a group meditation. A major class from a swami was held before lunch and plenty of time for the group of pilgrims to wander about the property to do sadhana or chat with others.

The slideshow takes you through one of our morning pujas, conducted by Natyams Rajanatha and Mayuranatha, then to Satguru's keynote class and our final homa and pajapuja, which was extremely intoxicating with thick, smoke-like darshan that filled the room.

The monks were able to make lunch for everyone each day and Gurudeva's devotees all ate together in our largest mandapam. Our newest publication and app were handed out to everyone as a special gift to those who gave up their time to spend it with Gurudeva.

Thank you to everyone for coming, thank you to our officiating priest Kumar Gurukkal, thank you Satguru for letting us serve in this way. Aum Namah Sivaya.

Sivaya Subramuniyaswami’s 2016 Mahasamadhi Observance: Day 1

This week begins Kauai Aadheenam's observance of Gurudeva's mahasamadhi. We started off the week with a powerful rudra homa to invoke divinity through fire. Yoginathaswami was our pujari for the morning and the rudram chanters raised their voices loud to get everyone in tune.

During the homa, Gajanan and Bhavani Nataraj took their Arul Sishya vows to Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami and all the devas in Kadavul.  They will now begin preparation of their next step towards full membership and initiation.

Later in the day the group watched one of the history movies in the Media Studio. Jai!

Beginning a Festive Week

This morning sunrise over the aadheenam is a beautiful way to start our 2017 Gurudeva Mahasamadhi celebrations! Jai Gurudeva!

After attaining his mahasamadhi in 2001, Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami has been worshiped at this time each year. Pilgrims from around the world have arrived and today was the first day of their morning worship and classes with the monks. We'll post photos soon, once they're all processed. Until then, enjoy these beautiful shots of our islands charm, and join us in thanking Gurudeva for the magical, perfect presence that he has caused to flood into our lives every single day. Aum Namah Sivaya. Sivaya Namah Aum.

"To live positively in the conscious mind each day, exercise at least a half hour. Keep the vital energies of the body high and healthy. Eat simply and follow a vegetarian diet, feeding the stomach rather than the mouth. Be considerate of others always and live inconspicuously, almost transparently, by not ruffling your surroundings, by keeping the home neat and clean, by passing through a room or place and leaving it in a nicer condition than before you arrived. Seek fresh air and learn to breathe deeply. Get out in the sun. Move the physical body, walk briskly, dance, keep the energies vibrant and buoyant. Be close to nature. Grow food. Develop an art or craft so the hands are active, creative. Of course, being neat and attractive in personal appearance keeps the thoughts of others toward you positive. This is the way to live in the conscious mind. Try to live life as though you are walking in the rain without getting wet, or carefully writing on water. No ripples, no disturbance, no reactionary residue that has to be faced at some future date." Gurudeva
