Ashram Sadhana Day

Several days ago the monastery observed Ashram Sadhana Day. While the monks do at least half an hour of cleaning each day already, on this monthly day the monastics work all morning to clean the monastery buildings and temples. This time the monks began with a focus on cleaning Kadavul Temple, before heading to clean their offices and the many other areas around the monastery that they are assigned to clean. One wonderful feature of this day (which the monks always look forward to) is that lunch is prepared by local mission members, who are excellent cooks. This way all the monks can focus on cleaning, which includes our kitchen. A clean and uncluttered environment keeps the energies moving in our lives, so if you ever feel like things aren't flowing for you, get out a bucket and some fresh rags and start scrubbing! Aum Namah Sivaya.

    Amazing photos of the crab spider’s web. I fell into a trance like state looking at it. The spider is Bhraman. The world’s are created by Bhraman, like the web spun by the spider. The beautiful raindrops are the infinite transient worlds created by Bhraman strung on the web created by Bhraman. We are connected to that Source.
    Thanks again for such wonderful pictures. Wish I could visit the Monastery and experience the beauty and divinity of the place.

    That’s a lot of cleaning but we all must keep a clean place where we live. 🙂
