June Chitra Puja

This morning we celebrated our monthly padapuja to Gurudeva in Kadavul Temple. As the sun was rising, monks and local devotees gathered around Gurudeva's shrine and observed an abhishekam to his black granite tiruvadi. Natyam Jayanatha and Nirvani Tejadevanatha performed the abhishekam as other monks chanted Sri Rudram and delved within. Jai Gurudeva!

Golden Gurudeva Mahasivaratri Upadesha – 1989

Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami

Mahasivaratri Mangalam!

On this most holy night of the year we are pleased to bring you another golden audio treasure from the Gurudeva Audio archives: "Being in Siva Consciousness" some themes in this quintessential Gurudeva talk on Siva:

Siva is very accessible, everywhere. But the barrier is ignorance, forgetfulness. There are great truths throughout the entire universe, these great truths lie in your own superconscious mind, waiting to be used. See God Siva everywhere as all pervasive energy. Bliss consciousness, Siva consciousness. A story: "Why didn't you let Siva take you?" Everywhere a guru goes becomes his ashram. Leave the lower nature, look at Siva and don't see anything else. Siva is love and love is Siva. Find out how wonderful you really are. You'll become the knower of the known, the seer or the unseen, the embodiment of the Truth. Worshiping Siva with Himself, all the elements. Be in Siva consciousness.

Gurudeva Padapuja

Jai Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami!

Each month during the chitra nakshatra the aadheenam observes a padapuja in Kadavul Temple to Gurudeva's granite paduka (sandals). Today's puja began at 5:45am with the chanting of Sri Rudram and an abhishekam performed by Natyam's Mayuranatha and Jayanatha. This is a powerful time of year for connecting to the inner world's and today's puja was no exception with a somewhat "zingy" energy felt from Gurudeva throughout the temple. Aum Namah Sivaya.

"Renouncing all I inwardly entered
And beheld the Light within.
My heart trembled. I prostrated low.
But Him I never forgot;
And the Lord of Celestials
Freeing me from the whirl of births
Immortal made me here."
-Tirumantiram 2615
