When iraivan's Nandi is bathed the water will flow to a pot via the Gomukai spout. Here are some photos of these stones
Devotees from four different countries came to witness and participate in this year's Guru Purnima festivities.
Another auspicious event on this Guru Purnima day: our postulants all renewed their vows for another two years. Our monastic order marches forward with strong dedicated souls working together in harmony -- fully sacrificed to the mission of the Guru Paramapara.
Three sishya advanced today on the spiritual path of San Marga, taking their Vishesha Diksha vows on this very auspicious Guru Purnima day. Ravi Visswanathan, Sheela Visswanathan and Uma Tandavan, pledged themselves in service and dedication to the mission of the Kailasa Paramapara and received the initiation to begin daily Saiva Atmartha Puja. This is both the culmination of years of preparation and the beginning of a new stage of spiritual practice -- kriya and raja yoga -- for these devotees. The Vishesha Diksha also marks full membership in Saiva Siddhanta Church.
