Potriyan Sivanathan arrived from Malaysia today for three-month Task Force stay at the monastery. He’s been with Gurudeva since he was a little boy, being the son of Ramesh and Saraswathy Sivanathan, one of our oldest sishya families in Malaysia.
Here is with fellow task forcer, Maruthu, who now has a companion at the guest house for a couple of weeks before he returns to Malaysia.
"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."
