One Sunday each month, various Saiva Siddhanta Church missions around the world gather to help further manifest Iraivan Temple in some practical way. For the Wailua Mission here on Kaua`i, the focus is on rudraksha processing. The proceeds of all rudraksha sales go to building Iraivan Temple. It's a time of togetherness, bonding, sharing of ideas, hopes, and aspirations for the future of the temple and how to most effectively and joyously continue to make Gurudeva's vision a physical reality. But, you can't do that on an empty stomach. Everyone knows that. So, food is also a part of this valuable family time together. The annamaya kosha must be functioning properly in order for the others to, as well. We offer some images of said gathering as well as a few shots from the subsequent weekly aadheenam tour.
Long time Master Course student Valli Ananda became an Arul Sishya of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami at this phase's Sun One homa. Recently, Valli moved from her home in Califnornia to Kaua`i and has been an uplifting, joyous, heplful, and knowledgeable addition to our community of devotees. We welcome her with open hearts into the fold of Siva's seekers.
The April 17th Natchintani Workshop was well attended with over 20 participants. All happily learning Yogaswami's songs and going over the meanings so that we all know what we are singing.
Singing the songs of Yogaswami while at the same time understanding the meaning and imbibing his spiritually exalting message is a powerful sadhana.
"Andatthil pindatthil, aandavanai kaannum"
In the macrocosm, in the microcosm, God is what we see
"Naam athuvena arivathu Kavasam!"
We Are That! Knowing this is our protection!
