Gurukkals Visit Monks

Sivasri Shanmugam Sivacharyar -- son of late Sivasri Sambamurthy Sivacharyar of Kaaligambal Temple, Chennai -- and Sivasri Sundaramurthy Sivacharyar -- principal of the Saiva Agama Pathashala -- came to the monastery recently and paid their respects to the monks. Wonderful conversations were had that detailed future plans for the Iraivan mahakumbhabhishekam and spreading the culture and tradition of Sanskrit to the next generation. These two powerful priests are working with the digitized Agama project and moving that mission forward at their centers.

We thank them profusely for visiting and uplifting us all with their wonderful vibration.

Sadhu Paksha Begins

The monastery grows calm and still as our two-week period of visitor interaction slows. The sadhu paksha retreat is also a time for monks to change their meditation spot, from inside the main meditation room to outside and into the great jungles that is Kauai Aadheenam.

On Pilgrimage

This morning the Ganapati Kulam had the pleasure of hosting Dharmalingam Siddhan, his wife Courtney and their daughters Dhara and Nira. The family is here on a short pilgrimage from the east coast. While here Dharmalingam shared a wonderful story of his first meeting with Gurudeva in 2000. For a long time Dharmalingam has offered his consistent help each quarter by doing an important part of drafting of our Hinduism Today web edition. Many blessings to this wonderful family. We hope to see them again soon. Aum Namah Sivaya.
