Today the monastics and island devotees, along with about 60-70 attendees, celebrated our once-a-month Nataraja abhishekam for ardra nakshatra. Kadavul Nataraja was offered gallons of milk, quarts of honey and piles of holy panchamritham. After getting redressed in fine cloth and suffocated with fresh tropical flowers the Siva ashtottara—108 names—was chanted aloud. As tradition follows, photos of the main shrine are strictly prohibited, enticing you to make the trip and see Siva in the flesh.
