Celebrating Siva’s Great Night

Aum Namah Sivaya,

Several days ago we celebrated Mahasivaratri in Kadavul Temple. Beginning With a Siva homa, the night continued with a recorded talk by Gurudeva, a silent meditation, a break for coffee and tea, an upadesha by Satguru, and finally a Lingam Abhishekam to the small crystal Lingam which sits at the feet of Lord Nataraja. Aum Namah Sivaya. Sivaya Namah Aum.

2019 Mahasivaratri Upadesha

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami gives an upadesha in Kadavul Temple on the evening on Mahasivaratri, discussing the sacredness of the Siva's Great Night and the goal of Self Realization

Wishing You a Blissful and Blessed Mahasivaratri

Aum Namah Sivaya

Tonight is Siva's most sacred night. A night, not when we worship Siva as divine all-pervasive bliss, but rather, when we go within ourselves and attempt to experience ourselves as Siva. It is a sacred night of profound silence. A time to find that point inside you where awareness originates.

Though the timing might change a little, you can tune into our Youtube channel at 10:00pm Hawaii time to watch a livestream of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami's upadesha. kauaiaadheenam

Thai Pongal 2019

Several days ago we observed Thai Pongal at Iraivan Temple. Chinnu made the delicious rice dish which would auspiciously boil over and the shilpis decorated and helped with the event. The monks gathered at Iraivan and enjoyed some prasadam along with an nice view of the morning sunrise.

We hope you had a festive and meaningful Pongal. As Lord Surya enters Capricorn we give thanks for the Earth's abundance and anticipate the longer and longer daylight of the coming year. See this article for further information about Pongal:

2018 Maha Ardra

Aum Namah Sivaya!

Last week on December 22, the aadheenam celebrated Ardra Darshanam with a full and festive abhishekam to Lord Nataraja in Kadavul Temple. The day began with a homa and concluded with a midday final arati following the abhishekam. Falling on the full moon this year, this was a powerful day full of powerful blessings. All in alignment were the center of our galaxy, the sun, the earth, the moon and Ardra, Siva's dancing star. Though we can't film Lord Nataraja to show you the event, here is a look into the many other preparations that took place.

Happy Pancha Ganapati!!!

We wish you all joy and blessings for this year's Pancha Ganapati!
