Lemurian Scrolls



THE STORY OF THIS REVELATION BEGINS IN THE DISTANT AND STILL MAGICAL LAND OF INDIA. IT WAS A SPLENDID SEASON IN NEW DELHI, APPROACHING THE PASSAGE OF MAHĀŚIVARĀTRI, THE HOLIEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR. Having pilgrimaged with seventy-five monastics and devotees throughout India and Sri Lanka to saints and sages, ancient temples, dharmaśālas, aadheenams and modern āśramas, I happened late one morning, during a spontaneous walk, upon an extraordinary Lord Śiva Naṭarāja Deity at Nirmala’s Copper Bazaar. I walked around the wondrous six-foot-tall bronze statue situated on the busy sidewalk and quietly said, “Hello!” It was the store’s insignia and showpiece, too precious to sell, the owner declared, as no value could be attached. Bravely disregarding that fact, we bargained and traded through the morning hours and ultimately acquired it and as evening approached arranged for its shipment to our distant Garden Island of Kauai. At Mahāśivarātri time again a year later, in 1973, in the jungles of Kauai, our Kadavul Naṭarāja Deity, Lord of the Dance, arrived at Kauai Aadheenam and was placed in the gardens overlooking the sacred Wailua River, where it was spontaneously decorated, bathed and worshiped. That night the exact location of the Deity’s installation was chosen by Lord Murugan Himself when He appeared to me in an early-morning vision, upturned His glistening vel, His scepter of spiritual discernment, and powerfully pounded its point three times on the cement steps at the Aadheenam entrance, marking the precise spot to place the Deity. Soon after, a rotating 24-hour vigil was established, and it has been maintained without a single hour’s lapse to this very day. Under this strict monastery discipline, monks take turns every three hours in the temple, night and day, 365 days a year. During this vigil, they perform constant meditation, pūjā, yogas and chanting, quelling the mind and giving themselves in profound adoration, prapatti, to this remarkable icon. Thus the arrival of the Śiva Naṭarāja Deity transformed our life, and from that day onward life in and around the monastery has revolved around His divine presence. This establishment of Kadavul Hindu Temple on the lush, tropical Garden Island of Kauai, Earth’s most remote land mass, at the base of Hawaii’s oldest extinct volcano, known as Mount Waialeale, eventually was recorded in the State archives by the Governor as the first Hindu temple in Hawaii. With the arrival of Lord Naṭarāja, thousands upon thousands of devas of the Second World and devas and Mahādevas of the Third World penetrated the inner atmosphere of the Lemurian mountaintop island of Kauai from several ancient temples—in Sri Lanka, the precious Kumbhalavalai Koyil, mystic Nallur and potent seaside Tiruketeeswaram, and in India, the mighty Chidambaram, Thanjavur’s Brihadeesvara, which I am said to have built in a previous life as Rajaraja Chola, according to several jyotisha nādīśāstrīs, and the sin-dissolving Rameshvaram, overflowing in healing waters in twenty-two wells. The three worlds had at that moment become connected as one, and the Śaivite Hindu religion began to flourish on this side of the planet. §

A Great Inner-Plane Library§

¶Soon after we had placed the Deity, my inner eye, within the ājñā chakra, was opened upon an array of great manuscripts, and the inner library of Lord Subramaniam was seen. Upon each wish and fancy, the librarian, a tall, fine, elegantly robed, bearded man, would pull forth from one shelf or another great volumes and with firm hands open and turn the pages to the proper place to be read. I read these volumes one after another to the monastics at Kauai’s Hindu Monastery after this siddhi was obtained. They asked questions. The books were placed within the inner ether of my mind, the pages turned and read and enjoyed and understood. Thus, Śiva’s great diamond-dust-like darshan flooding out opened the inner door of our Lord Subramaniam’s private library, which contains the records accrued since His arrival on this planet. Lord Subramaniam, the South Indian God also known as Kārttikeya, Murugan, Skanda and Sanatkumāra, has always been near and dear to us. §

In a Coconut Grove Near The Ocean§

The venue of this remarkable clairvoyant happening was the garden restaurant of Coco Palms Hotel. As the librarian presented each volume and turned page after page, I dictated slowly to a sincere monastic scribe, who patiently and accurately wrote down each word. These were the days when cigarette smoke billowed forth from elite hotel guests at neighboring tables, clouding the atmosphere and creating an ambiance in which the ākāśic manuscripts could be clearly seen. The backdrop of Hawaiian music, the hubbub of people talking and the lower vibration of worldly feelings, too, helped screen out the conscious mind to make this clairvoyant siddhi a working reality. On some days reams of pages were turned and read; on other days nothing was seen. Vigilantly, morning after morning, week after week, month after month, we sat waiting, while enjoying fruit, yogurt and coffee, for my inner eye to open on the inner-plane library. The restaurant was not in an ordinary location. Our table overlooked tropical ponds amid the island’s largest coconut grove near the ocean on the east side of Kauai, the oldest and northernmost of the Hawaiian archipelago. Not far away was the second of a series of seven ancient temples, or heiaus, each representing one of the seven chakras, or spiritual force centers. These seven rock-walled, open-air sanctuaries were built by the first Hawaiian priest, Kuamo’o Mo’okini, 1,500 years ago, along the Kuamo’o trail (now a highway), the spine of the dragon, that winds up a stony ridge toward Mount Waialeale, the island’s central and tallest peak, site of the seventh heiau, representing the crown force center, sahasrāra chakra. Each day’s writings, gleaned by my astral vision near the birthstone heiau, where royalty were birthed in olden times, were penned in letter-sized spiral notebooks. Before noon, we returned with them, following the sacred Wailua River four miles inland, to my āśrama, Kauai Aadheenam, now the site of Kadavul Hindu Temple, on land revered in sacred Hawaiian chants as Pihanakalani, “where heaven touches Earth.”§

Monks Gobbled Up the Early Chapters§

The early revelations were enjoyed by maṭhavāsis at Kauai Aadheenam and shared with others at our branch monasteries via an in-house teletype network, named bīnība in Shūm, our language of meditation. As the flow continued week after week, maṭhavāsis in San Francisco, California, and in Virginia City, Nevada, gathered ’round to read the spellbinding messages being clacked out on the piano-size communication devices. The monks were able to type questions to me and receive my responses in “real time” from Hawaii, thousands of miles away. We enjoyed many philosophical discussions in this way. As each volume finally drew to completion, it was typed up by the scribe on an electric IBM typewriter, from which a dozen or so copies were made and cased in plain, white softcover binding. These texts, restricted to monastics under vows, served us for twenty-four years. One chapter was read daily at the meditation sessions to mold a new standard of selfless living in the monasteries of Saiva Siddhanta Church. Thus, the pages of this book you hold became a living message from one world to another, not merely an interesting encounter. It dramatically changed the life of many thousands of spiritual seekers on several continents. Lemurian Scrolls comprise twenty-seven chapters, one to be read each day of the lunar calendar, which is how they have been studied in our monasteries since 1973. Preceding each chapter is an intricate painting by I. Wayan Marya, whom we commissioned in 1999-2000 to illustrate the prevailing concepts. This young Balinese artist was strictly trained in the traditions of Hindu art in his island nation, a land that remains today as lush, magical and spiritual as ancient Lemuria. Elaborate illustrations were given to him which were drawn by Bruce Andri in 1974-75 for the first black-and-white edition of this book. I. Wayan Marya drew on his amazing gift to depict nature and sacred architecture, following in his imagination the incredible story being told. I think you will agree he has brought to life these early eras through his envisioning interpretations. The large captions adjacent the art were written in the mid 70s and edited in 1997 when we drew Lemurian Scrolls forward as a public book. The short introductions to the chapters, in my own hand, were composed in 1998. The cover, like all our book covers, was painted by the venerable S. Rajam, artist from Chennai, South India.§

The Ancient Lemurian Script§

After reading from these ancient scriptures, verification in the First World began to arrive as to the usefulness in the personal lives of the Śaivite monastics of much of this information. The language in which I read the first books was found to be similar to an old Lemurian language. It looks like this:§


The books were large. This language was written in gold. Shimmering gold letters danced out at me, and I knew the meaning as the inner eye scanned each page. When questions were asked, the masterful librarian turned the page. Lord Subramaniam’s librarian could read my thoughts. He read them well and presented the volumes systematically that were to create, when finished, The Lord Subramaniam Śāstras and change the course and direction of our Śaivite monasteries in the Western area of the world, then and into the future of futures.§

Numerous Volumes Revealed§

The Lord Subramaniam Śāstras are divided thrice. The divisions are: The Lemurian Śāstras, The Dravidian Śāstras (which together constitute these Lemurian Scrolls) and The Śaivite Śāstras (now part of the Maṭhavāsi Śāstras) written for the guidance of and restricted to āchāryas, swāmīs, yogīs and sādhakas of our Saiva Siddhanta Church. Along with these were unfolded two supplementary manuscripts, The Book of Virtue and The Book of Attitudes, along with a larger work entitled The Book of Remedies. The Lemurian Śāstras, which make up the first half of these scrolls, unfold a remarkable story of how souls journeyed to Earth in their subtle bodies some four million years ago. The narrators of the ancient texts explain that civilization on their native planets had reached a point of such peacefulness that spiritual evolution had come to a standstill. They needed a “fire planet,” such as Earth, to continue their unfoldment into the ultimate attainment—realization of the Self within. To persist in the lush atmosphere, genderless, organic bodies were formed through food-offering ceremonies. Later, through a slow process of mutation, the fleshy bodies we know today as human were established as vehicles for reincarnation. As the book progresses, a diminishing of the spiritual forces radiating from the Central Sun of the galaxy is described. As spiritual awareness wanes, the life force of man, kuṇḍalinī, sleeps and instinctive desire manifests in abundance. These amazing chronicles of early man’s life on Earth are told from within great, walled monasteries where narrators look back and forward at the same time, often reading from ancient texts, describing the daily life of those within and outside these sacred citadels. The theme throughout is to continue channeling the pristine spiritual vibration from the Central Sun as long as possible and to preserve the Lemurian culture, its wisdom and knowledge for generations far into the future. This, under the guidance of powerful gurus working closely with great Gods, was the spiritual mission of the dedicated monastics of these eras. Largely it was done by implanting sacred writings in the ākāśa by mystical means. §

From the “Dravidian” Manuscripts§

The Dravidian Śāstras, which make up the second half of Lemurian Scrolls, will interest you from the point of view of how humans lived at the end of the Dvāpara Yuga, their society, internal and external government, the culture of those early years on the Earth and how some of it carried forth to this very day. Our narrators explain that it was in the far distant past that the people who formed societies realized they needed group spiritual guidance. This group guidance is, to this day, recognized as a viable form of community and leadership. Examples that come to mind are the Dalai Lama’s Tibet, where something like one-third of the social order is a monastic group, serving the religious and political needs of the two-thirds family group. Thus their society was transparently stable for hundreds and hundreds of years. This and other societies, such as villages in Europe, where monks and nuns were valued, were settled with a certain percent of monastics who served the religious needs of the other residents. The division of lay community and monastic community results in a wealthy, highly productive, harmonious society. We learn in the Dravidian Śāstras just how this was accomplished in the long, long ago. It is prophesied that sustainable societies will once again emerge when mankind returns to the wise protocols of these earlier times, where spiritual men and women, spiritual principles and spiritual sharing guided both individual and society, where religious leaders were valued and sought after, for the populace knew that if they could be engaged in the social effort, they would lend it a light and wisdom that would not otherwise be available or important. These last sixteen chapters of Lemurian Scrolls explain the procedures of management, their gurus and their protocol. We can see its wisdom really worked, and our monastic order endeavored to emulate it as much as was possible in this modern, diverse age where divisions are normally accepted as signs of an advancing civilization and religion is considered an interference with scientific points of view.§



This illustration, from the original collection drawn by Bruce Andri in 1974, shows the early food offering ceremonies that were performed to assist souls in forming genderless, organic bodies in which to persist in the lush atmosphere. §

Questions From Monks Answered§

Now I shall ramble on a bit and explain some of the intricacies involved in completing this work, taken from my notes made along the way, as bringing through and recording these śāstras took over one year of retreat from outer activities for absolute one-pointed concentration each morning for many hours. Each maṭhavāsi was asked to send his questions about the śāstras through the top of his head, with an onrush of energy up through his spine following it. In this way his communication would penetrate into the Second World, the Antarloka, and even sometimes the Third, the Śivaloka, and be heard by the devas and Deities there. He was carefully taught an ancient method of writing his question or his prayer, a request for help from beings in the Second and Third World, neatly on a piece of paper which he signed. During the fire pūjā each evening, it would be burned, disappear as ash in the First World but reappear in the exact same way in the Second. This the librarian of Lord Subramaniam’s valuable collection of ancient and modern manuscripts would read, and choose appropriate chapters and paragraphs for me to read and make notations of for the monastic’s elucidation. One of my original notes from 1973 says, “On a great table in Lord Subramaniam’s library I see many pieces of paper and am told by the librarian, hearing him through my inner ear, that these are the notes and questions that the Śaivite monastics in my monasteries have been burning during the fire ceremony and which have re-manifested there for answers and elucidations of their current needs and queries that will assist in the writing of the Śaivite Śāstras. These Śāstras will explain how the basic Lemurian laws and Dravidian culture can be made applicable at this time.”§

The Long Task Of Reading And Dictating§

It was through the first nine months of inner research that the original writings of The Lemurian and Dravidian Śāstras were dictated to a young monastic who wrote patiently, word after word, what I read from the manuscripts shown to me in the inner ākāśic ether of the mind. Later in the year, many portions of the manuscripts were re-read in the ākāśa for verification and clarification and compiled together into a more comprehensive presentation, as the Lord Subramaniam’s librarian and I had become accustomed to working together, and these two documents were brought into final form. My notes from that period explain, “Through the last several moons on my retreat, which incidentally ended yesterday, October 1, 1973, my third eye has developed to a great extent in precision and accuracy, the only catalyst being numerous cups of morning Kona coffee and a crowded room where the odic force is high, which acts as a mirror, especially if cigarette smoke is in the air, and enables me to see extremely clearly these ākāśic records. I want you to know that the Lemurian Śāstras are in two languages of which the meaning comes out to me and I interpolate it in English. When I began the Lemurian Śāstras, it came as a surprise. I had not been accustomed to reading the ākāśa, let alone books in the ākāśa. So when the books were presented by the librarian in the Lord Subramaniam Library, which I have verified actually is Lord Skanda’s library, it came as a surprise. Truly, as Satguru Yogaswami said, ‘It is an open book.’ ”§

Reading of The Dravidian Manuscripts§

The Dravidian Śāstras (chapters twelve through twenty-seven of Lemurian Scrolls) were read from a collection of manuscripts written in a language that looks like this:§


The writing of the language was black upon yellow, gold-like paper, some of which appeared to look like ancient parchment, but of a kind which is not seen on Earth today. The Śaivite Śāstras were written for the Saiva Siddhanta Yoga Order by a group of devas in the Second World, in English, clearly printed on white paper with black letters. They were easy to read, as a translation did not have to occur through the process of the universal language that happens within the ākāśic area of the mind when languages foreign to an individual are encountered. In the Antarloka, as well as the Śivaloka, each one hears another speak in the language he is accustomed to, due to the immediate process of translation that occurs. This is called the universal language. The Lemurian script and Dravidian script seemed to leave the page, travel toward me through the ākāśic ether, enlarging themselves as they did, and I would speak out the meaning. More than often, after speaking out the meaning, print would leave the page, and the actual scene, in vivid picture form, would appear in place of it, depicting what had been described. Some of these books stood three feet tall and when opened spanned about a four-or-five-foot area. These were the Lemurian collection, written during the Tretā Yuga. They all had heavy covers and were placed into the ākāśic library through certain prescribed methods used in that day. Some of the covers were decorated in gold, with a light-green, suede-leathery-type material covering them; others were brown and still others red and covered with jewels.§

The Dravidian Volumes§

The Dravidian collection were of different sizes. Some had large, floppy covers and loosely connected pages. Others were small, well bound. Still others were heavy, bulky, but were lifted and placed before me as if they weighed no more than a feather. At times, pages would crackle as they turned, and others would appear to be quite well preserved. Here is a note I made when encountering these ākāśic texts in 1974: “These śāstras were written at the end of the Dvāpara Yuga as a guideline for going into the Kali Yuga and are in a different language than the śāstras that were written at the end of the Tretā Yuga. They tell at great length about the time of night in the Kali Yuga when the kuṇḍalinī in the form of a snake would curl up and go to sleep, and since we know all the problems that this has caused through the nerve system of man in a state of sleep, we won’t go into this particular section of the book, which is a thick section. The śāstras say that when the kuṇḍalinī is well balanced, the whole nature becomes very smooth, and that every effort should be made to surround oneself with people and circumstances that keep the kuṇḍalinī active in the deeper chakra. Another book is being presented now by the librarian which is a book of prophecy of the action of the kuṇḍalinī in the Sat Śiva Yuga. This book has big, floppy pages, and each page is about two by three feet, big and loose and floppy, with a soft cover. Occasionally, out of the center of a page comes a picture, and I see very clearly how these things look. So, between words and looking at the pictures in reading this book, unlike other books, you don’t have to turn the page to get another picture; it just comes out of the place where the picture is. This book is the same as all the rest, sort of yellow-gold with golden writing on it, with a royal blue ākāśic background, and is sort of sitting there in space. Occasionally when we get into an area, the librarian will turn a few pages and a whole new area will come up. I just see now that the fibrous bodies are the same structure as a leaf on a tree and the sap running though the veins all equally, so they were kind of vegetable or tree constructed bodies. However, it shows clearly that they were not exactly a vegetation of this Earth because they were produced out of this kuṇḍalinī force and maintained by it.”§

First World Petitions§

My original notes continue, At one point I saw a table before my forehead with an array of paper and books and manuscripts on it. I had never seen this before, and here is how I described this experience: ‘A large scroll tells me that this is the collection of petitions from all the esoteric groups and organizations in the world who are guided from this one library of our Lord Subramaniam in the ākāśa. The thoughts of the group leaders, it goes on to say, are listened to by the inner plane divine helpers and written down and given to the librarian here. Then these leaders of the various groups are brought to the library at night, and the librarian (the one who has been getting for me all the books I have been reading) gives them books to read, and specific helpful things are pointed out to them. In this way all the many groups heralding the Sat Śiva Yuga on Earth are guided in the same way, getting all their information and guidance from the same central source in the ākāśa. In this way, Lord Subramaniam, the God of the Pleiades, does His work through his international library, with records existing today that are over two million years old. These petitions on this table will be answered tonight when the particular person arrives, or the answer will be projected to him telepathically or clairaudiently. The organization leader may say in the morning, ‘Oh, I had a good dream last night or in meditation and it was unfolded that we should do this or that,’ and his people quite naturally would be inspired to make it manifest.’ ”§

A Window On the Way of Wisdom§

During the course of the months that followed, after the first entry into the library, we really came to love Lord Subramaniam’s librarian, and he told us that on the Earth plane, the last time he was here, he was one of the Śaivite saints. He mentioned that Satguru Yogaswami of Columbuthurai (1872-1963) was also one of the Śaivite saints, Nayanars, and was sent by Lord Subramaniam back to a birth in the Bhūloka, the First World, to live in Jaffna to lay the foundation for and accrue the power to sustain Śaivism in the Western world. “There are more of us,” he said, “and they will identify themselves on the physical plane from time to time.” In reading this book, Lemurian Scrolls, use your inner eye to follow what is described. You will begin to see the intricacies to be found in the depth of the ākāśa. They outline “the way of wisdom” for the āchāryas and swāmīs of the Saiva Siddhanta Yoga Order and offer a window into the origins of mankind and our purpose for being on planet Earth. We do hope that you gain some new insights and inspiration from Lemurian Scrolls, as have so many of my devotees during the past two decades. During the many months it took to bring through the entirety of the Lord Subramaniam Śāstras and their supplementary texts, I came to deeply appreciate the wonderful being whom I knew as Lord Subramaniam’s librarian. To that very tall, efficient man, elegantly dressed in colorful robes, living and serving in the Antarloka, I now offer a profound “Mahalo,” thank you, for granting us access to your master’s extraordinary archive. I shall conclude with a quote from my dear friend, Lord Subramaniam’s librarian, offered with a wise nod of approval: “An amazing work, well done.” After that, the door gently closed. To this very day my inner eye has never opened again into Lord Subramaniam’s ākāśic library, though other inner worlds continue to be revealed.§



On August 16, 1987, the day of Harmonic Convergence, the world’s largest, perfectly formed, single-pointed quartz crystal, 39 inches tall and weighing 700 pounds, was brought to Kauai from Arkansas to be the central icon of Iraivan Temple. As the focal point of worship and meditation, the crystal will be adored as a Śivaliṅga, or mark of God. In India, the crystal Śivaliṅga is considered to be the most sacred and unique of all Liṅgas, because of its integrated substance and natural self-manifestation, for it is not carved or crafted by human hands.§

Another Vision And Direction For the Future§

It was almost exactly two years after the arrival of the Lord Naṭarāja Deity, once the entirety of the śāstric reading had been completed, that another vision came that planted the seeds of our San Mārga Iraivan Temple, which is being carved of white granite as a spiritual edifice to last a thousand years. For this decades-long project we built a village in Bangalore, India, in 1990. Today over 100 workers and their families daily carve by hand this magnificent edifice. Early on the morning of February 15, 1975, I experienced a three-fold vision of Lord Śiva. First, I saw Him walking in the meadow near the sacred Wailua River on our fifty-one acre Aadheenam land. Suddenly His face, composed of billions of tiny, hair-like quantums, was looking into mine. I remember this perfect face of all faces clearly today, and with each year the details of this vision become clearer and clearer. Then He was seated upon a great stone. Astonished, I was seated on His left side. Upon reentering earthly consciousness, I felt certain the great stone was somewhere on our land and set about to find it. Guided from within by my satguru, I hired a bulldozer and instructed the driver to follow me as I walked to the north edge of the property that was then a nearly impenetrable tangle of buffalo grass and wild guava. I hacked my way through the jungle southward as the dozer cut a path behind me. After almost half a mile, I sat down to rest near a small tree. Though there was no wind, suddenly the tree’s leaves shimmered as if in the excitement of communication. I asked the tree, “What is your message?” In reply, my attention was directed to a spot just to the right of where I was sitting. When I pulled back the tall grass, there was a large rock, the self-created Liṅga on which Lord Śiva had sat. The bulldozer’s trail now led exactly to the sacred stone, surrounded by five smaller boulders. San Mārga, the straight or pure path to God, had been created. All this happened on February 15, 1975. §

San Mārga Iraivan Temple§

Worship of the sacred stone with water and flowers was commenced immediately through daily pūjā rites, and a master plan was unfolded from the devonic worlds. Today, visitors to the sanctuary walk the path of the Tamil Nayanars around picturesque lotus ponds and visit the six shrines of the Kailāsa Paramparā on the banks of Śaravaṇabhava Lake in Ṛishi Valley. Across rolling meadows, pilgrims will gaze upon the San Mārga Iraivan Temple, enshrining the world’s largest single-pointed quartz crystal—a 700-pound, 39-inch-tall, six-sided natural gem, a sphaṭika Śivaliṅga, acquired in 1987. Iraivan, designed to stand a thousand years and more as a spiritual edifice for forty generations, is America’s first traditional, all-stone temple. We now know that this vision and its blessings, as the seed for such a remarkable project for future generations, was a gift from the inner worlds following directly in the wake of Lemurian Scrolls. The foundation had been set long, long ago, and now it was time to bring forth Sanātana Dharma to the Western world in all its glory. And what better place to begin than Pihanakalani, “where heaven touches Earth,” on an ancient mountaintop of Lemuria, the Garden Island of Kauai? §

A Place Of Sacred Pilgrimage§

Here is a quotation from the Śaivite Śāstras giving a vision of future fulfillment: “By the time 1995 arrived, the inner order and the outer Order of Śaivism worked in harmony with the band of Mahādevas in the Third World. Lord Skanda and Umāgaṇeśa and Lord Śiva Himself were pleased at this band of great Lemurian souls working together in the Second World and the First World. Constant rays from cosmic galaxies began to penetrate these monasteries deep into the Earth, some so strong they penetrated through the Earth. This permanent darshan that vibrated all the temple land resounded through the countryside, establishing a peace of mind and abundant consciousness for those who lived within the radiance of this darshan of the monasteries and temples. Looking into the future, we can see this vibration growing in the ground. Each pebble, each grain of sand became sacred. Each stone, like a chakram. The monastics were ecstatic and they spoke to all who came to visit with the radiance of their presence. There were constant streams of pilgrims flowing in and out of certain areas of these great monasteries, schools and temples.” Now, in 1998, after we have lived the vision for many years, pilgrims from India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Europe, USA and many other countries are daily enjoying the radiance of this darshan as it nears its fulfillment, which will be complete at the kumbhābhishekam of the carefully hand-carved golden-domed Iraivan Koyil, the final resting place of the multi-million-years-in-the-formation crystal Śivaliṅga. You, too, will be welcomed when drawn by a dream, a vision or inner impulse to come to have darshan as you perhaps did several yugas ago in another life. Sitting here on Kaua’i’s eastern coast, looking out upon the calm Pacific Ocean, listening to the musical waves caressing the ancient coral reef and reminiscing the eventful days in which these scrolls were read, I wonder, as you also may, what other gifts of knowledge these great beings have in store for us. Maybe, just maybe, the masters of ages past and the age to come, within the inner world will open the doors of their ākāśic library again. The door knobs are on the inside and can only be used by them. We can only wait and wonder, wondering while we wait. Enjoy Lemurian Scrolls, Angelic Prophecies Revealing Human Origins.§

Back in 1975, as the Lord Subramaniam Śāstras were completed, Gurudeva shared the Lemurian vision and helped each maṭhavāsi mold his life in accordance with the new flows outlined in these great ākāśic volumes. Each monk became stronger and stronger through the years. §

As we release this second edition in the year 2006, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, Gurudeva’s successor, is the spiritual leader of this order of āchāryas, swāmīs, yogīs and sādhakas, all following the disciplines, holding the attitudes and striving to fulfill the ideals outlined in these Lemurian Scrolls. §
