Gurudeva’s Russian follower, Dinanatha, is touring India with a group of Russian Saivites, and in a shop in the temple town of Somanath ran into this advertisement. Seems Gurudeva has become an icon of Rudraksha sanctity.

More From 2017 Mahasamadhi Observances

Jai Gurudeva!!!

Our 2017 Mahasamadhi celebrations continued with an afternoon parade on the second day. This parade took a pair of tiruvadi and Gurudeva's image out to Iraivan Temple's Inner sanctum and back. Stopping along the way at Umbrella Ganesha, the flagpole, and followed by worship at Dakshinamurti.

The next two days would begin with our morning padapujas performed by the monks, and included classes with Sadasivanathaswami and with Satguru. Satguru discussed many topics including an elaboration on Lord Murugan and some explanation of Skanda Shashti.
On the final afternoon, we began with a homa conducted by Kumar Gurukkal who flew in for the event. The homa included several powerful Vedic rituals and culminated with Satguru carrying the Kumbha outside around the flagpole and back into the temple to be poured over Gurudeva's tiruvadi for the final abhishakam.
