Stepping back to yesterday afternoon we had a marvelous event at Iraivan. A palanquin was prepared and beautifully decorated to carry Gurudeva’s padukas to Iraivan.
Gurudeva’s sandals are in this silver tray.
Our silpis have the honor of carrying the palanquin
Yogi Jivanandanatha performs the yagna.
All the devotees are invited to come forward and make offerings to the sacred fire.
Monks chant a special version of Sri Rudram where verses are interspersed with “Svaha!”
Now the return parade to Kadavul temple after circumambulating Iraivan.
There was a magnificent sunset in progress over Waialeale.
Everyone is awestruck by the light show from the skies.
