An Afternoon at Kauai Aadheenam

This afternoon at the aadheenam, we have bright cloudy skies with a soft intermittent rainfall. It has all created an impressive golden light. This is the third day of a short four-day phase for the monks, and as usual they are busy doing their seva. Here we take you on a short photographic tour of the gardens.

"The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers."
-Rabindranath Tagore

Aum Namah Sivaya.

Sadhaka Jayanatha Becomes A Natyam

On the auspicious occasion of Skanda Shasthi and with the blessings of God, Gods and Guru, our Jayanatha takes Natyam vows. This marks the acceptance into the trials of the pre-yogi path. The elders of the monastery have approved of this young monk moving forward in his mission at the aadheenam.

"When the days are dark and the days are light, the Natyam does not give up his inner fight."

Namaskar Surya; Surya Namaskar

Siva Nataraja, Dancing in the Fire Called Consciousness

Today we received a gift from Pieter Veltevrede, an artist living in Holland. He is the one who painted our five forms of Sadasiva. His gift is this amazing Siva Nataraja, dancing in the fire called consciousness. Thank you, Pieter. Siva Art
