Bodhinatha's second day in Sydney saw time for a few meetings with local devotees. Here's Ainkaran from Australia and Chelvi from New Zealand celebrating their first anniversary.
Mrs. Nadarajah is one of the first two ladies to (really) actively promote the Iraivan Temple building project among the Sri Lankan community that now calls Sydney home. Here she is (seated next to Bodhinatha) with her family.
Vasaant Krishnan caught up with Bodhinatha at the Helensburg Siva Vishnu Temple south of Sydney. He's flown in from Tasmania where he's attending university to attend all of Bodhinatha's events. Here he says "Vanakkam" and "Good Day" to his family in Singapore.
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.
