We bring you a few more photos of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami at the Spiritual Park of Mauritius.
In 1986 Gurudeva Sivaya Subramuniyaswami chose this remarkable seven acres of land that hugged the Rempart river just where it emptied into the sea lagoon. Gurudeva liked its remote quietness and how ocean breezes swept over it. Here is Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami meditating at a very quiet spot of the Park.

After a walk on the property Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami had a COM meeting with all the stewards of the Spiritual Park. One of the major concerns was the setting up of larger tent structures around the Ganesha Mandapam to accommodate devotees on Ganesha Homa days. They also talked about the new parking lot.

Within our Saiva Siddhanta Holy Scriptures the Saiva Agamas explain the basis of temple ceremonies and worship plus yoga and jnana. The Tirukural was considered by Gurudeva to be "the most accessible and relevant sacred text." In it are practical and helpful guidelines for our conduct in every day life. The point of family life is to gain steady improvement, forever, in self control in the midst of responsibilities in the fulfillment of family dharma. Meanwhile, not taking detachment too far but taking it in the sense of spiritually looking for happiness, not outside in other people or possessions, the world, but inside ourselves and then sharing it with family and friends. "We regard the writings of our satgurus as scripture."

Tirukural, Introduction and Contents
Tirukural, Chapter 15 Possession of Self-Control
"The temple enables us to feel the presence of God, Gods and devas." We use our inner eyes to see what's going on in the temple, the three worlds. In the temple we're being good dvaitists in the dimfi perspective, focused in bhakti upon God Siva. In meditation we're monists, in the shumif perspective. We claim our oneness with Siva, Sivoham, I am Siva. In surrender, shrinking the ego through devotion, we have a realization that we're not the doer, that Siva is doing it all. Siva's energy comes through our soul.
