Mayuran Sokkan Received His Namakarana Samskara

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!

    Jai Ganesha!

    Lord Ganesha in his infinite wisdom prompts peoples’ minds in mysterious ways. On my return from London I was repeatedly playing a CD I bought from Sri Varasithi Vinaayagar Hindu Temple on Kennedy Road in Toronto. I visit this temple twice every year and feel specially connected to this Lord Ganesha. To know that Mayuran Sokkan received his Namakarana Samskara at this temple brings me very special joy in my heart. Congratulations and May your service to Lord Siva touch many souls in this world!
    Incidentally the priest performing the abishekam has excellent qualities and I always take my conch shell with me and blow it at this temple during pujas. Thank you Monks!
