2013 Gurudeva Mahasamadhi Compilation Video

Every year on the Chitra nakshatra in October-November, our Gurudeva, Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, the founder of Kauai’s Hindu Monastery, is honored and remembered with special ceremony. The monks worked hard to make this year’s a special one, acknowledging this twelfth annual event. Over a four-day period, two priests officiated several elaborate homas and pujas, for which a 16-foot square yagasala with a five-tiered pyramidal altar was built inside the Banyan Mandapam. One hundred devotees, including the monks and local devotees, gathered to celebrate Gurudeva’s life and legacy. A namakarana samskara, membership vows and initiations into chanting the Aum Namah Sivaya mantra took place, and daily satsangs with Bodhinatha centered around understanding energies and meditation. Gurudeva’s presence and continuing blessings were felt by all.

    Ganapathy Thunnai!
    Aum Namasivaya!
    Jai Yogaswami! Jai Gurudeva!

    The 12th Mahasamathi Observations of our beloved GURUDEVA,
    which took place at Kauaii Aashramam, is really reflecting the SPIRITUAL VIBRATION, to the Siva World , with the heartfelt events, such as Homas, Chanting of Aagamas,Manthras & saiva puranas, by the highly eloquent Sivachariyas; Especially, by
    Sivachariyar Sri la Sri BHARANI Kurukal, who was well trained by his Great Guru, Siva Sri Pitchai Kurukal of PILLAIYAR PATTI Temple, in Tamil Nadu, South India!.
    The Video clip has been made very professionally, where you could feel that, Gurudeva’s presence was there, in the Fire Glow of the Homa, as well as outside too.! Great! Thanks to the dynamicTEAM work of the Aashramam.!
    The SATGURU is a Siddhar, one who has attained Spiritual Power or
    Siddis!, but he does not display these power publicly; His Greatest Power is in transforming the Hearts & Minds of his Devotees!

    Our beloved Paramaguru Yogaswami’s Natchinthanai (Good Thoughts)too, says as follows:
    Gurubhakthi is the Greatest Blessing!
    Gurubhakthi means Intense Love, Faith & Devotion
    towards the Guru!
    Cherish it and relish it & be refreshed!

    The GREAT Name of GURUDEVA Live for Ever.!
    Jai Gurudeva!
    Aum Shanthi!
