Weaver’s Wisdom

There are a few unusual men who have had enough of the world and choose to dance, live and merge with Siva as Hindu monks. §

These rare souls follow the path of the traditional Hindu monastic, vowed to poverty, humility, obedience, purity and confidence. They pursue the disciplines of charya, kriya, yoga and jnana that lead to Self Realization. Knowing God is their only goal in life. They live with others like themselves in monasteries apart from the world to worship, meditate, serve and realize the truth of the Vedas and Agamas. Guided by Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami and headquartered at Kauai Aadheenam in Hawaii, USA, the Saiva Siddhanta Yoga Order is among the world’s foremost traditional Hindu monastic orders, accepting candidates from every nation on Earth. Young men considering life’s renunciate path who strongly believe they have found their spiritual master in Gurudeva are encouraged to write to him, sharing their personal history, spiritual aspirations, thoughts and experiences. Holy orders of sannyasa may be conferred in Gurudeva’s order after ten to twelve years of training. §

Hail, O sannyasin, love’s embodiment! Does any power exist apart from love? Diffuse thyself throughout the happy world. Let painful māyā cease and never return. Day and night give praise unto the Lord. Pour forth a stream of songs to melt the very stones. Attain the sight where night is not, nor day. See Śiva everywhere and rest in bliss. Live without interest in worldly gain. Here, as thou hast ever been, remain. §
