April 2021 Chitra Puja

Jai Gurudeva!

At the end of the previous lunar phase, our monks enjoyed their monthly puja and abhishekam to Gurudeva during the Chitra nakshatra. Our annual Mahasamadhi celebrations to Gurudeva take place close to when the nakshatra coincides with the new moon, making for a quiet and mystical observance. This recent puja was the astronomical opposite of that, coinciding with the full moon, making for a powerful ceremony of palpable love and blessings. Aum.

    Beautiful photos, dharsan and mahavakhya. I do love this combination Рso immersive and brings the mind to Gurudeva’s Holy Thiruvadi. Nandri also the the dharsan of photos from the Aadheenam in a later TAKA post. Feel so connected through TAKA Рtravelling without travelling. Aum Namah Sivaya.
