What Happened Today at the Monastery?

It is another very quiet day at the Aadheenam. A warm dry spring day with gentle breezes, peace all around.

More on our guests yesterday from host Shama Kumaran, who write:;

“Arumugamswami hosted Dr. Siva Subramanian and his wife Kalyani (both originally from Columbuthurai, Jaffna, Sri Lanka). They enjoyed the morning abishekam in the Kadavul Siva Temple followed by a grand tour of the Iraivan Temple.

Dr. Subramanian had previously met Gurudeva many years ago when he visited the Washington Area. He was also blessed to meet Bodhinatha more recently during the assembly of The North American Council of Hindu Temples in 2007 in Flint Michigan.

In 1981 he hosted Ganapathy Stapathi in his home while Stapathi initiated the building of the Sri Siva Vishnu Temple in Maryland.”

Thoughts While Wandering in Paradise

A quiet peaceful morning walk causes one to deeply appreciate the absolute beauty and pure spirituality of the Aadheenam’s sacred paradise.

Officially named “Colorado,” – the pastel peach and yellow tones of this beautiful waterlily reminds one of a new sunrise.

A gigantic vibrant torch ginger flower basks in the early morning rays.

There is beauty everywhere . . .

A little stream flows beside the Narmada lingam offering fresh mountain water for abishekam to Siva.

A grove of Guava trees gives welcome shade.

The soothing sound of lifegiving streams and waterfalls flow freely throughout paradise affording the meditative pilgrim numerous peaceful sanctuaries to enjoy the “within” of himself.
