We received these photos and testimony from Toronto where Yogaswami’s devotees celebrated his Maha Samadhi yesterday.
“We are very delighted to share some of the photos taken at Satguru Yogaswamy
Maha Samadhi Pooja observance held at Sangamam Hall, Toronto amidst the presence
of many Yogaswamy devotees.”
We felt the presence of Satguru Yogaswamy and Satguru Bodhinatha Veylan Swamy amongst us with a miraculous occurance.
While the message from Satguru
Bodhinatha Veylan Swamy was being read to the congregation, petals of flowers
from the charam strung around Yogaswamy and Lord Siva fell intermittantly four
times on Satguru Bodhinatha Veylan Swamy’s picture. Many devotees witnessed this
and relished the presence and thoughts of the great Satgurus in astonishment.
It was a very moving experience for all the devotees.
Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being.
