Skanda Shashti in Kadavul, 2012

Today we celebrated the final day of Skanda Shasthi, honoring lord Kartikkeya, first renunciate and master of Kundalini yoga. A time to turn inward and connect with Lord Skanda's lightening-fast shakti.

Once a profound relationship is developed with Lord Muruga, then with the guru's permission and guidance, true yoga may commence. Otherwise, no matter how long one sits in meditation, no matter how hard one tries, it is just sitting, it is just trying.
