After six months in the Supplicancy, which included a month sitting by the wall and begging entrance. Mayuran passed his review by the senior monastics and has been accepted as a full monastic into Kauai's Hindu Monastery. Today the monks gathered to witness his vow taking. Through this process he becomes a Postulant. His name is now Sadhaka Mayuranatha. This is always a joyous occasion for the new monastic and a great day for the monastic order. Jai Mayuranatha!
Some of the other sadhaka shaved his head last night. Today he receives his ear-rings.
The ladies retreat began today. In the morning they had a class with Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami. Then in the afternoon they had a class with Sivakatirswami on our sacred songs program and then with Yoginathaswami on garland making. These garlands will be used in the Ardra Darshanam Puja on the 8th.
