Thoughtful and very meaningful gift which makes the connection and ties instantly stronger between the devotees in Sri Lanka and the Kauai Aadheenam. Thank you for making it possible Paramacharya Palaniswami and Rishi Thondunathan.
Thank you so very much, Rishi Thondunathan, for making the world a better place, for us all to live in.
I remember a long time ago, when we first met. I just want to say thank you, for being my friend, and for all your blessings!!!
All my Love, Respect, Appreciation, and Devotion,
"Adjust yourself to the realization that you are a divine being, a self-effulgent, radiant being of light."
Jyoti is the Sanskrit word for inner light. To bestow on devotees terms that were more specific, Gurudeva developed the Shum Language of Meditation. In Shum the word for the light that lights up the mind is balikana. During Shum meditation there is an indrawing of forces to realize balikana, a moon-like glow, leading to iftye a deeper kind of inner light which, in turn, leads to milinaka, a sustained iftye which doesn't go away and can be sustained after we've finished our meditation.
