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.

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.
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.
