Muruga’s Magnificence

Tomorrow evening Kauai Aadheenam will be celebrating Vaikasi Visakam with an elaborate puja and abhishekam to Lord Skanda in Kadavul Temple. The energy from this Lord of Kundalini has been steadily increasing as we come closer and closer to His festival time. Here are some photos of Lord Muruga from the last month, to help you along in connecting with His energy. Aum Saravanabhavaya Namah.

A Goodbye to Our Glowing Globetrotters

This morning we brought Sannyasin Yoginathaswami and Yogi Adinatha to the airport. There they caught a flight to Sri Lanka to begin their two week journey, which will be part business and part pilgrimage. The two will be traveling about the island for a few days before heading to Bengaluru in India, and then finally to Malaysia. Wishing them a fun, fulfilling and safe trip. Aum Namah Sivaya!

June Chitra Puja

This morning we celebrated our monthly padapuja to Gurudeva in Kadavul Temple. As the sun was rising, monks and local devotees gathered around Gurudeva's shrine and observed an abhishekam to his black granite tiruvadi. Natyam Jayanatha and Nirvani Tejadevanatha performed the abhishekam as other monks chanted Sri Rudram and delved within. Jai Gurudeva!
