Aum Namah Sivaya

Wishing everyone a wonderful Ardra Nakshatra. Today, as they do once each month, the monks performed an abhishekam to Lord Nataraja. Today's puja was quite powerful, and we were joined by many wonderful guests in Kadavul Temple.

Now have I realized the path of Hara. In the past I sought Him in narrow paths and strayed. Lo! All the while He stood before me like a beacon light in firmament, guiding my voyage across the sea of my soul's longing. The path of Siva is the proven path. It led them to Hara. It is the royal path that renowned souls have walked, the path divine that took the devout to cosmic space. That path do seek, enter and persevere. Still your wandering thoughts, chant the sacred syllable Si and so persevere on the path of Hara. You shall envision primal light effulgent.

Lord Ganesha

Today Lord Ganesha was looking extra nice, bedecked in golden konrai flowers.

"The God with the elephantine visage I shall never forget--Shankara's son, with massive belly and the thodu in His ear, the Lord who gave His grace to Indra, of whom mantra is His very form." Yogaswami's Natchintanai

Honoring Iraivan Temple’s Carvers

We have been having a creative time with our Quad Copter. Please enjoy these new aerial shots of our recently installed Temple Carvers Pavilion next to Iraivan Temple. At around 2:20 the camera looks across the river to our Himalayan Acres fields, where you will see our fields of 8-foot-tall Koa trees in the foreground and behind that a large grassy field which has a few hundred coconut trees.

Gurukkals Visit Monks

Sivasri Shanmugam Sivacharyar -- son of late Sivasri Sambamurthy Sivacharyar of Kaaligambal Temple, Chennai -- and Sivasri Sundaramurthy Sivacharyar -- principal of the Saiva Agama Pathashala -- came to the monastery recently and paid their respects to the monks. Wonderful conversations were had that detailed future plans for the Iraivan mahakumbhabhishekam and spreading the culture and tradition of Sanskrit to the next generation. These two powerful priests are working with the digitized Agama project and moving that mission forward at their centers.

We thank them profusely for visiting and uplifting us all with their wonderful vibration.
