Brahmachari Mayuran Sokkan has a good Saiva karma to be sure! He is living in Texas but made a special connection with the Tamil community after a pilgrimage to Toronto last year. He went back to the Sri Varasithi Vinayagar Hindu temple on April 7th, 2011. Riccardo Morano was transformed to become Mayuran Sookan under the auspicious of one of the high priests of the Sri Lankan Tamil community. Vignesh Markandu, who helped facilitate Mayuran time in Toronto writes:
” I have sent pictures from Mayuran Sokkan’s Namakarana Samskara.
It went all according to the Hindu ways at Sri Varasithi Vinaayagar Hindu Temple on April 7th, 2011.
The priest to formally sign and conduct the ceremony was Dr. Somaskanda Kurukal. It was a very successful event. The priest also gave an interview about the event to the Geethavani Tamil Radio station in Toronto.”
Mayuran has already taken Aspirant vows and will be arriving at the Aadheenam tomorrow to begin his monastic training. Welcome a new soul to our Saiva Hindu Family!
