Garden Seva

Aum Namah Sivaya

Each week, on Tuesday, a stalwart group of dedicated island devotees adventures together into the sacred gardens around Iraivan Temple. During the morning hours, they plant new plants, weed garden beds and more. Though largely an anonymous instance of seva (and we're sure they'd probably like to keep in that way), we thought it would be nice to highlight these humble sevaks as they make their way through the gardens near and around Dakshinamurti for a day. After their Sivathondu ends around mid-day, the monks take them a South Indian lunch to share under the Iraivan Garden Pavilion. Aum.

    Jai Jai Shree Maha Ganesh!
    Thank you Swamis for the Post of Garden Seva! Thru the Sivathondars Lord Dakshinamurthi is blessing those who were waiting for a few weeks to have a glimpse at him. I am overwhelmed with joy and cannot believe my luck.
