Bodhinatha writes from Sydney:
"Our 10 plus hour flight from Honolulu to Sydney was pleasant. Welcoming party of some ten devotees met us at the airport, a drive to the suburb of Parramatta which is the second largest business district in the Sydney area and quite near the Murugan temple. They are setting up darshan meetings at the hotel starting Thursday afternoon.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
