September 2023 Gurudeva Chitra Padapuja

This morning we observed the 288th monthly paduka puja to honor our late Gurudeva's mahasamadhi that occurred on Chitra nakshatra.

Exerpt from the Kularnava Tantra scripture--

"The world you reach after the physical body is shed is determined by the level of consciousness reached while in the body. So, as long as the body lasts, exert yourself towards the goal of Liberation. Remember, the physical body does not last forever. Age prowls like a leopard; diseases attack like an enemy. Death waits not to see what is done or not done. Before the limbs lose their vitality, before adversities crowd in upon you, take to the auspicious path.
Therefore, choose, then worship a satguru. Worship his feet. Cherish the very sandals (paduka) which hold his feet. All knowledge is founded on those paduka. Remember and cherish those paduka, which yield infinitely more merit than any number of observances, gifts, sacrifices, pilgrimages, mantra-japa and rituals of worship.
It is these feet, when remembered, that protect in times of distress, danger or calamity. Study, remembrance, knowledge, donations, sacrifices and worship are truly done by him who ever remembers the satgurus feet. Look toward the direction in which the lotus feet of the satguru lie and bow down to them every day with devotion. There is no mantra higher than that of his feet, no merit higher than his worship."

    Thank you Swamis for your tireless service to Hinduism, Hindus worldwide, the world, and the Universe. Aslso the Hinduism Magazine cover honoring Shakti, the Goddess. A great time to honor Goddess Shakti by producing a bracelet with a message “Aum Shakti” similar to the one given to me by Gurukkal Kumar, from the Iraivan Temple Minimela with a message “Aum Namasivaya.” When the thought arose in my mind yesterday, Gurukkal Kumar was contacted and we discussed the possibility to accomplishing this goal. This bracelet will invoke piety and the power of Goddess Shakti among young girls and also great friendship. This bracelet can be distributed during Navaratri, during Vilaku Puja and all ceremonies involving women and honoring women! Hope this becomes a reality.
    Aum Namasivaya
    Sivayanama Aum
