The Chinna (“Little”) Pancha Ganapati that is worshiped outside the main shrine at Saiva Siddhanta Church’s Spiritual Park in Rempart. He is there to bless all those who cannot fit into the main mandapam during ceremonies.
The lovely bridge over the pond.
Another ten steps have been completed on this stairway to where the river meets the sea at our center in Mauritius. This is something Gurudeva spoke of years ago, and the sishya are making it happen. This is very, carefully done hand work. Each stone is hand picked and placed.

Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
