Gurudeva’s 2020 Mahasamadhi Observances Begin!

Jai Gurudeva!
Jai Kailasa Parampara!

Yesterday, Satguru and our monks began a four-day celebration of Gurudeva Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, his life and teachings. While the event is usually attended by many members and devotees from around the world, this year is understandably more subdued, with only monks observing the temple pujas. These last two days began with a puja at Gurudeva's shrine in Kadavul Temple. The monks chanted Sri Rudram, Gurudeva's ashtottara (108 names) and Yo Pam Pushpam. Following the arati, everyone sat for a short meditation. Aum Namah Sivaya.

"A satguru is needed because the mind is so cunning and the ego is a self-perpetuating mechanism. It is he who inspires, assists, guides and impels the shishya toward the Self of himself." Gurudeva

    That one great mountain did necks crane to behold,
    That one still lake did roaring ripples subdue,
    That one fiery blaze did cavernous ice thaw,
    That one silent mantra did every atom vibrate,
    That one motionless dance did darkness pervade.

    Jai Gurudeva! We feel the warmth and potency of your darshan and draw close to you on this auspicious ceremony to show our gratitude and pray for continued love and guidance.
