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.

Gurudeva Leads Us in Twelve Beliefs of Saivism

In this short piece he briefly describes the purpose of Saiva Siddhanta Church and then leads us in the repetition of the Twelve Beliefs of Saivism. Join him as he requests us to affirm the great truths of our ancient religion.

Three Worlds: Awesome Discovery in Gurudeva Archives

bhajan-devas-gods-gurudeva Magical divine synchronicity happened these past few days. We have been meditating on key knowledge that is missing in the mind of youth today. One of these is the understanding of the Three Worlds. Background discussions with our team on creating short digital illustrated educational modules on this subject have been in progress for weeks. Out of the blue Vayudeva writes: "I found this old cassette of Gurudeva, from 1977. Side A is - 'This is Religion' and Side B is 'Beliefs of Saivism.' " Side A is actually all about the Three Worlds. We looked into our archives and there it was! Gurudeva gave these two talks in 1977 and then he commissioned a professional to edit them, add vina music, reproduce on cassettes and distributed them to all his devotees. We did not have the software or tools to do this ourselves in those days, so he must have felt it was very important to get this message out. We are happy to bring you this new treasure from Gurudeva's audio archives -- a vision dear to his heart that he hoped to pass on to all. His message is renewed and will live on. Stay tuned for Side B tomorrow.

Three Worlds - This Is Religion

December Chitra Puja

This morning the mathavasis and local members celebrated the Chitra nakshatra with our monthly padapuja to Gurudeva's paduka in Kadavul Temple. Nirvani Tejadevanatha and Natyam Jayanatha performed the abhishekam while other monks chanted Sri Rudram.

"The vibration of darshan knows no time or space. You see darshan when the satguru is around, and you can feel his darshan when he is miles away, even at times stronger. Look at darshan as great wires of communication, much like an open telephone line, enabling you to pick up the receiver and always find someone at the other end of the line." - Gurudeva
