Bodhinatha in Mauritius

Some more photos of Satguru Bodhinatha’s Seminar at the Swami Vivekananda International Convention Centre at Pailles, Mauritius…..

Participants asked several questions that were nicely answered by Satguru Bodhinatha… This was an interesting session. There were however, so many questions and the time was short ……

The end of the second seminar session for lunch….

Some of our Himalayan Academy publications on sale…..

A model of the Convention centre displayed in the lobby for visitors.

Bodhinatha and Sadhaka with all the participants for lunch.

Serving was not difficult. Everything was well planned in advance..

A nice time to make new friends…

New Master Course students…. they are all cousins and have been helping selflessly all through the seminar.

A happy way of living Hinduism together as a family….

At the end of the seminar participants came forward to receive Blessings from Satguru Bodhinatha. Flowers and small gifts of all kinds were placed at the Guru’s Feet.

Everyone with a flower to offer to Bodhinatha…

No rush, no pushing… everyone waits patiently and lovingly for this long awaited encounter with a Divine Soul.

“The seminar ended up so quickly”, said one participant. “It was so interesting that we were not aware that time was running out”.

The last group is about to meet Bodhinatha.

Blessings to you!

After the departure of Bodhinatha and all the participants, the last crew to leave after having verified and packed everything… Kulamata Premila Manick and her two children Sivarathna and Jambalini.

Ananda Motoocurpen and his family left after having settled a few payments at the SVICC….tired but happy to have done so much Guru seva for this event.

The car park at the SVICC is quiet again after a full busy day with hundreds of participants occupying that whole place for a spiritual seminar with a living Satguru.



Plans are in motion already to have another similar event in April 2009. You can contact us for more information on Himalayan Academy activities in Mauritius at: spark@hindu.org

Innersearch Asian Odyssey 2008 Retrospective

We continue with photos from our Asian Odyssey and return to our beautiful hotel in Kovalam where our classes with Bodhinatha and Palaniswami take us now on a journey within.

The hotel overlooks the ocean.

The study guide that was prepared by the monks for each of the Innersearchers.

Lots of notes are taken during the classes….pricesless gems to be captured forever.

In Praise of Kauai Aadheenam

It is quiet and serene at the Aadheenam. One of our pilgrims sends this small vignette of praise for this holy center


In Utmost Appreciation of
the Kailasam in Kauai
Known as the Kauai Aadheenam

In India, there are 12 Jyothirlinga Kshetras:



Saurashtre Somanaatham cha Sree Saile Mallikarjunam
Ujjayinyaam Mahaakaalam Omkaare Mamaleswaram
Himalaye to Kedaram Daakinyaam Bhimashankaram
Vaaranaasyaam cha Viswesam Trayambakam Gowtameethate Paralyaam Vaidyanaatham cha Naagesam Daarukaavane Setubandhe Ramesham Grushnesam cha Shivaalaye



In America, there is Kauai Aadheenam
with its Maha Sphatika Lingam.

And each time we go to Kauai,
it is like going to not just the Maha Sphatika Linga Kshetra, but also to one of the Dwadasa Jyothirlinga Kshetras.



Thank you, Gurudeva and Bodhinatha



We shall be there many more times!
