Reminder – Our Devotees Hold Ekadasa Rudra Homa on the 26th

Ekarudra Homa, Malaysia

A reminder to all that Saiva Siddhanta Tiruchabai, Malaysia devotees will conduct, Ekadasa Rudra Homa in November 26th, 2016, in Kajang. Ekadasa Rudra Homa is the chanting of Sri Rudram for 11 rounds and mystically meaningful form of worship of Lord Siva, the very source of cosmic energy for entire creation. Shiva has eleven forms of Rudra and in this Homa all the 11 Rudras are worshiped. It is considered to be one of the most powerful and effective among homas performed in the world. Sri Rudram occupies a central role in vedic literature and in the practice od Sanathana Dharma. The Yajur Veda decrees that Sri Rudram Homa acts to shield the world from harm and negativities of all kind. By performing this homa in the strict and traditional way, complete with high-minded intentions, the world and individuals in it will be protected and rewarded. The event is open to the public. Please join us!

Kodiswara Returns To Malaysia

Kodiswara Selvanathan from Malaysia has just finished his five-month upakurvana taskforce program at Kauai Aadheenam, so he took the opportunity to become a Vidyasishya during our early morning Siva homa in Kadavul Temple. He first took the brahmacharya vrata, then voiced the Yama-Niyama Pledge and Ten-Minute Sadhana Vigil Pledge from the Vidyasishya document. The practices given in these two pledges help provide a balanced life throughout the schooling years, especially when away from home in university.

Before leaving, Kodiswara gave a wonderful testimony to all the monks about how much he enjoyed his stay, noting that he had thought monastic life was mainly worship and meditation, when in fact most time is spent working really hard. We have word that Kodiswara has arrived home safely, and hope his time spent at the Aadheenam working with the monks will give him a solid foundation for the future.

The Creation and Blessing of Satguru’s Holy Chariot

We present a complete slideshow of the Siddhidata Kulam's creation of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami's new procession chariot which was first used on this past Satguru Purnima. The ensuing weeks before the big day involved *a lot* of work on the part of the Siddhidata Kulam to ensure it would be completed in time. For them, we are thankful.

Kailasa Parampara Honored in
Concord, California on Guru Purnima

On July 17th, the California Gold Gate Mission members of Saiva Siddhanta Church held Guru Purnima in the downstairs hall of the Concord, Shiva Murugan temple. The event was presided over by resident priests, Ananth Sivachariar, and Sathish Gurukkal who are now serving at the temple.

Devotees performed the pada puja, chanted Gurudeva's names, bhajans and Natchintanai. The priest guided the puja with their powerful chants.

The two priests are disciples of Sr. Dr. K. Pitchai Sivachariar from Pilliyar Patti. Ananth Sivachariar knew Gurudeva well and attributes his service now in this temple to Gurudeva's vision and support for the Sivachariar priests.

As most watching TAKA know, this temple was migrated from Gurudeva's original Palaniswami Sivan temple in San Francisco. It was later managed as Himalayan Academy, California branch, by our monks and devotees and then given over to the Hindu community when Gurudeva consolidated all his teaching activities at Kauai Aadheenam.

Ananth Sivachariar gave a short talk at the event recognizing the work of all the devotees who were the "original founders of this temple" and urged everyone to come and participate more. It was inspiring to see the spirit of the Kailasa Paramapara honored here on this day.
