With the completion of our new parking lot, we are slowly relaxing our reservations to allow more guests on public tour day. These fifty souls now know what a magical place Kauai Aadheenam is!
We offer a prize for anyone who can remove the ball from the lions mouth!
If guests walk briskly on the way back from Iraivan they witness Paramacharya Sivanatha making the final oblation to the Kodimaram and the four directions.
While this photo doesn’t really do it justice, this Anthurium is the deepest raspberry color, very unusual and I am sure rare. This little Gecko has even come for a closer look in broad daylight (also a rare sight).
"Meditation is a long journey, a pilgrimage into the mind itself." In Gurudeva's approach we start meditation with the physical body then get more and more subtle, withdrawing energy into the spine then not utilizing mental activity. Everything we meditate on is actual experience, not something the mind has created. We experience something that's always there, awareness aware of itself. Gurudeva's mystical Natha Language of Shum. Awareness is the witness consciousness of the soul, 'niif.' In the nature of our form of meditation there is a continuity (nalif) from one day to the next.
