Mr. and Mrs. Ganeshalingam are visiting from Edmonton for the first time. They are one of the seven founding trustees of the Mahaganapati Temple in Edmonton. His parents lived close to Satguru Sivayogaswami’s ashram in Sri Lanka. His father used to keep a special room for Yogaswami to stay in when traveling about.

"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
