2021 Gurudeva Mahasamadhi Celebrations – Day One

Aum Namah Sivaya!
Jai Kailasa Parampara!
Jai Gurudeva!

Today begins our first of four consecutive days of worship in praise of Sivaya Subramuniyaswami. Every year during the Chitra Nakshatra in October/November we celebrate the day of Gurudeva's grand departure into the inner planes, honoring his life and teachings. This morning began with a puja at Gurudeva's shrine in Kadavul Temple. The monks chanted the sacred hymn of Sri Rudram after which Sannyasin Tillainathaswami and Yogi Haranandinatha performed the puja, offering flowers, incense, cut fruit and passing the sacred flame.

We thought it would be nice to bring you snippets from our 2001 Gurudeva memorial issue of Hinduism Today Magazine, so you can enjoy the outpouring of love and respect from many Hindu leaders. Click here to download today's pdf.
