A souvenir photo at one of our granite plates donated by Kauai Aadheenam to Mauritius.
The chairman of the Airport of Mauritius (left) had one of these plates fixed at the Arrival Passenger Terminal at the SSR International Airport. It reads: " Mauritius-The Rainbow island of Beauty and Harmony." A nice welcome to foreigners coming to the island!

A little crowd is there to welcome Bodhinatha.
Sishyas are happy to see Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami back to Mauritius and are happily moving forward to greet the Guru with garlands and flowers.
Everyone is chanting devotional songs honoring the Guru.
An unusual devotional joy at the airport which quickly attracted the attention of onlookers…
The last devotee to touch Bodhinatha's Feet
Time now to leave the airport…. after this brief contact with the sishyas. Watch TAKA for forthcoming events of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami’s visit to Mauritius. Aum.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
