Hindu history is replete with stories of noble, courageous, high souls who are born to uplift and guide mankind, men and women who come "from up down" in response to humanity's needs the more dire the need, the greater the soul sent to meet it. Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami was such a soul.
The Guru Chronicles : The Making of the First American Satguru
He was born in modern times to meet modern challenges born, he would say, "to protect, preserve and promote the Saiva Dharma," to bring the knowledge, worship and realization of God Siva into the 21st century. How he did that is revealed in a collection of stories. But he would be the first to caution that this is not about him.
He was only the latest guru in a lineage that had preserved the knowledge of the Self within man since the dawn of history, a lineage that existed before him, thrived during his lifetime and carries on today in his successor, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami. Those close to Gurudeva saw his communion with the inner worlds, experienced his life of revelation and realization. He has been the monastery's head since the founder, Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, attained mahasamadhi, his great departure, in Subramuniyaswami, known affectionately as Gurudeva, designated Bodhinatha, a disciple for 37 years, as his successor.
Most of the year finds him on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, where he oversees the varied publications of Himalayan Academy and serves as publisher of the international magazine Hinduism Today. At the acre monastery-temple complex, he trains the younger monks in their service duties and spiritual practices, and guides the lives of hundreds of families around the globe.
Following in Gurudeva's footsteps, he works informally with Kauai leaders to perpetuate the island's aloha spirit of love and friendliness and to help the community achieve greater sustainability. Bodhinatha is immersed in a series of educational projects and international seminars that focus on bringing religious instruction to Hindu youth, and on pamphlets and books that present Gurudeva's teachings in thoughtful, step-by-step style.
