The monastery was honored to have Surabhi Bharadwaj offer her masterful dance performace the other day in Kadavul Temple. She performed a short set during the curtain close and another afterwards. One could really see the story unfold as facial expressions, hand mudras and speed changed paced with the music. We had quite the performance and it is clear that a dancer must play out an entire drama of emotion and eventual bliss as Siva appears to bless everyone present.
Please visit Surabhi's website and show your support!

We're please to introduce Trey, our newest taskforcer. Trey arrived a few days ago and he is here at the Aadheenam for 6 months, learning what it's like to be a monk because he is interested in monastic life. He is visiting here from the mainland and is thoroughly enjoying his first encounter with a sub-tropic environment. It also happens to be Trey's birthday. So today we're wishing Trey a happy birthday!
"If you are a king, will you have contentment? If you are a beggar, will you have contentment? Whatever your walk in life may be, you will only have contentment through knowing yourself by yourself."
