The Golden Form of Yogaswami

Jai to Sri Yoganathan of Jaffna!

As you may know, at Kauai Aadheenam we have a small Yogaswami shrine in the corner of the Guru Pitam and meditation hall. This Golden form of Yogaswami resides there, being one of two such images of this great sage. The other statue is in Jaffna. Over the years, the statue of Yogaswami at Kauai Aadheenam has seen the wear of our tropical environment and the gold was beginning to show it. Thankfully we have some resident experts in the task of worshipfully re-leafing sacred images. Having recently re-leafed Gurudeva's murti in Kadavul, Deva Seyon and Tandu Sivanathan worked together do the same for Yogaswami. After moving Yogaswami to the work area they gave him a thorough cleaning. Later, after applying a chemical layer as a base coat, they added a layer of gold leaf. They next day they added the second layer, and now Yogaswami is looking bright and shiny. Tomorrow we'll see if another layer is needed. Following that, an extremely powerful, clear sealant will be applied, ensuring a longer lasting leaf. Once Yogaswami's murti is reinstalled we'll post some final photos. Aum.

"You can go to the top by climbing up step by step. But exceptionally there are some who, with the help of Shruthis, the guru, and their own understanding and experience, can fly like birds." Yogaswami
