A Jayanthi Gift!

Jai Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami!

On the day of our Guru Jayanthi celebrations, our monks also acquired the official Certificate of Occupancy for Iraivan Temple. The temple had been Kauai county’s longest standing, open construction project and they were happy to see it finally conclude. This occupancy permit is an important step as we begin to finish the last remaining stages of Iraivan Temple’s construction over the next few years. Also, Satguru ceremoniously received the large key to Iraivan Temple’s sanctum doors which have now been fully installed (more in a future post).
Aum Namah Sivaya. Sivaya Namah Aum.

Happy Guru Jayanthi!

Aum Namah Sivaya!
Jai to the Nandinatha Sampradaya!
Jai to the Kailasa Parampara!
Jai Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami!!!

Today We celebrate Satguru’s 79th Jayanthi. Feel free to send him your loving messages in the comments below.

“Many are the gurus who, like lamps, offer light in a house. But rare is the Satguru who illumines the village like the sun. Many are the gurus who are proficient to the utmost in the Vedas and shastras. But rare is the Satguru who has attained Parasivam. Many are the gurus on earth who give what is other than the Self. But rare is the Satguru who brings the atma to light. Many are the gurus who rob sishyas of their wealth. But rare is the Satguru who removes the afflictions of the sishya. He is the Satguru in whose very presence there flows the supreme bliss called ananda. The intelligent person will choose such a one as Satguru and none other.” Kularnava Tantra
