Life is Art

An artist friend of Vani Chenganna painted one of our church shishya, Ramai Santhirapala as a gift organized by the whole Europe satsang. The painting depicts Ramai receiving a final flower blessing from Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami. This moment begins the Arul Shishya dedication! We found the photo from the event by happenstance and thought it fun to post the juxtaposition. Enjoy.

Mauritius Natchintanai Workshop, March 2017

Our Mauritius Mission music lovers met on 19th March, for our 74th Workshop gathering where Natchintanai and bhajans are learnt and polished. Taking a few hours from their Sunday rest/ leisure time, a wonderful group was already at the Spiritual Park by 8.30 a.m On the menu was learning new bhajans and introducing a new Church standardised Natchintanai tune . This group meets regularly at our Spiritual Park where main focus is learning our Paramaguru's Natchintanai , which contains the essence of our lineage's Saiva Siddhanta philosophy : "Singing to the Gods is a powerful form of sadhana, an expression of bhakti that opens the heart, lifts the spirit and directs our energies toward the Divine."

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.
