Gurudeva Speaks on the Self

Happy Mahasivaratri!

February Chitra Puja

Yesterday our monks observed the Chitra Nakshatra with our monthly padapuja to Gurudeva. In the early morning, Satguru, the Mathavasis, local members and visiting pilgrims all gathered in Kadavul Temple, facing Gurudeva's shrine and granite paduka. Natyam Nandinatha and Nirvani Nilakanthanatha performed a beautiful abhishekam, pouring milk, yogurt, honey and other prana-filled offerings over Gurudeva's holy sandals, invoking a divine and uplifting atmosphere full of Gurudeva's blessings.

Chitra Puja in the UK

We recently received these images from devotees in the UK of their recent padapuja to Gurudeva during the chitra Nakshatra. Om Namah Sivaya

"Satguru darshan opens psychic seals in the devotee by moving his awareness out of an area that he does not want to be in. Similarly, a blowtorch changes the consistency of metal. The satguru is like the sun. He is just there, radiating this very pure energy like the sun evaporates water. The satguru hardly does anything at all. It is the seeker who opens himself to the great accumulated power of darshan which the guru inherited from his guru and his guru's guru, as well as the natural darshan he unfolded from within himself through his evolution and practices of sadhana and tapas."

January Chitra Puja

This morning the monastery begins a new phase following a two-day retreat. It also happens to be the Chitra nakshatra, so a padapuja was performed for Gurudeva's granite Tiruvadi in Kadavul Temple. Natyam's Mayuranatha and Rajanatha performed the abhishekam. Jai Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami! Om Namah Sivaya.
