The day arrived for Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami to leave the island of Mauritius after a very short stay. On the Departure day, sishyas gathered at Mahebourg at the residence of Brahmachari Vel Mahalingum to wish Beloved Bodhinatha a "Bon Voyage" back to kauai Aadheenam.

Sishyas listening attentive to Bodhinatha's plans for the 2010 Mauritius visit.
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami showed his appreciation for the progress all the sishyas have been making in Mauritius at the Spiritual Park.
Kulapati Manon Mardemootoo recommended that Brahmachari Vel Mahalingum be traditionally offered a shawl by Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami for all the good works he has been attending to at the Spiritual Park, especially cleaning and taking care of the huge granite murthis of Lord Ganapati, Lord Siva and Lord Muruga at the Park.
Devotees asking that their Saivite Trilogy be blessed.

Time almost over… Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami would have to leave for the airport….
One last request. Little Venilla, daughter of Kumaren and Lomavadee Moorooven wants an autograph for her saivite drawing book.
Thank you Beloved Bodhinatha for having been with us in Mauritius. Aum.
The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. "Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe." When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.
