Right after enjoying darshan session with Satguru, the Suresh Rajamanickam family visit the Pillaiyar Kulam and meet Shanmuganathaswami who has just returned from Europe and North America with Satguru. This final stop marks the end of their inspired and busy two-week pilgrimage.
For the last few days, female sishya and students of Saiva Siddhanta Church have been attending what is simply called their "Ladies' Retreat." Some years ago, a few of our women sishya asked Satguru if they could, amongst themselves, organize such an annual event. Upon approval, they began their yearly visit to the Aadheenam, at which they receive various classes from Satguru and our swamis on subjects such as self inquiry, meditation, jyotisha, devotional singing, hatha yoga, etc.
During the midst of this year's Ladies' Retreat, Suselah Periasamy and Toshadevi Nataraj received Mantra Diksha from Satguru today. Initiated into the daily sadhana of chanting Panchakshara, they move from this day on inward and upward to further reveal their innate divinity for themselves by themselves. Panchakshara means "five letters" in Sanskrit, and is used as a name for Namah Sivaya. Na, Ma, Si, Va, Ya.
The Ladies Retreat 2016 is well underway with daily classes and puja. Some of the events weren't photoed so you have to just come and see for yourself!
Our members on pilgrimage had a class today with Kaivalyanathaswami on the book Lemurian Scrolls. Most of the class was taken up with amazing, thought provoking Q and A. We thank Swami for his dedication on the subject of Lemurian Scrolls and all the members for studying the material and coming with the perfect questions.
