Happy Gurudeva Jayanti!

Today we celebrate the 92nd Guru Jayanti for Gurudeva Sivaya Subramuinyaswami.

It’s fun to be humans together, living lives, being all kinds of people. But really, we’re a willful band of colorful, adventure-loving souls. We’re renegades, we’re great leaders, we’re inspirers of change. We’re family, we’re rivals, we are momentary acquaintances of profound meaning. We’ve shaped communities and nations, groups and individuals, but mostly we’ve shaped each other. We’ve been alone unto ourselves in far off mountain places and breathed the freedom of those airy spaces. We’ve lived simple lives, enjoying the comfort of small endeavors and close loved ones, and we’ve lived lives stripped of all ease, fighting for a purpose we believed. So here we are again, doing it once more, laughing and fumbling to settle the score, readying ourselves to leave through that final, crystal-light door.

    Stepping through that crystal door . . . we laugh! At ourselves . . . At each other . . . And how we played – where every twist and turn was a blind man’s game. A party of great consequences to be sure – but a party no less. The hilarity of our postures and relations laid bare. Not always our best to be sure [rest in peace] . . . but now with infinite spaces all around – look! In all directions at once! Yes, we were heroes and kings and the lowest of the low . . . . And the grinding did polish, this we now know – Where I start and You begin is much closer now . . . A thin membrane of light . . .on the other side of the crystal door.

    jai to our beloved gurudeva !

    i too was a recipient of his blessings and love !
    my most cherished memories of him are
    time spent with him in a one to one interaction, over a cup of tea, as a part of very small group at the
    famous chotiwala restaurant in the holy city of rishikesh !

    Gurudeva is the life of our life. His great immortal legacy resonates throughout the inner worlds of light. As souls along Nandinatha Kailasa Parampara, Kauai Monastery is our home. The great philosophy and beliefs of Saiva Siddhanta so dearly unfolded to us by our Gurus form an inner vortex to be transformed by ourselves for a fuller and richer life. It is not easy, has never been easy and will never be easy. But the good news is that we are in secure hands with our loving Gurus at Kauai Aadheenam. Aum Namasivaya.
