Happy Ardra Abhishekam

As body, life, and world,
As sea, cloud and cloud-laden sky,
Permeating all, indestructible and continuous
The Lord stands in Majesty
The True way that never closes.
Tirumaniram 413


Today the monastery celebrates Ardra Darshanam. Nataraja was given elaborate abhishekam and was bedecked with countless fragrant flowers. Now and for days to follow, Siva's thundering stillness and silent power emanates from Kaduval temple's inner sanctum. Unconditional, Boundless and Absolute.

What has learning profited a man, if it has not led him to worship the Good Feet of Him who is pure knowledge itself?
The Supreme dwells within the lotus of the heart. Those who reach His Splendid Feet dwell enduringly within unearthly realms.
