The Aadheenam began its day with an early morning homa, which included a formal diksha for a pilgrimaging devotee. After years of study and preparation, Sivanathan Batumalai, here with his family from Malaysia, received his vishesha diksha, which is the second of two dikshas that all Saiva Siddhanta Church sishyas prepare to receive. He has now completed his full entrance into Sri Subramuniya Gotra and is known as Chela sishya.
