November 19th was a blessed day for the devotees of the Kailasa Paramapara in Mauritius. A number of the sishya advanced on the spiritual path by receiving Vishesha Diksha. Having proved themselves worthy and ready, they now take on the daily sadhana of performing Siva Atmartha puja in their homes. This is a big step on the traditional path of the Saiva Neri, as the devotee moves from the charya stage, fully into kriya, deepening his or her relationship with our Divine God Siva. On this solid foundation of daily worship, the devotee can proceed into the deeper realms of Raja Yoga.
The ceremonies were held at our Saiva Dharmasala, Saiva Siddhanta Church on Mauritius, known to the public as "The Spiritual Park." All the island sishyas were present at the ceremony which lasted some two hours. It was very special to be here with only the satsang of close devotees. Many remarked they felt like they were at a homa like they see at the Aadheenam on TAKA. After the Siva Homa, devotees were asked to collect water from the river and to ceremoniously pour over the Sivalingam. It was a memorable event for all those present. Aum.
