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.

Thank you Beloved Bodhinatha for having been with us in Mauritius. Aum.
Unless kundalini is active, the deepest meditative states are not available to us. But to activate kundalini, Gurudeva tells us we must invoke the grace of Lord Ganesha and Lord Murugan. "Yoga is internalized worship which leads to union with God." Experience the inside of you in a profound way. This requires dispassion. The popular term "kriya yoga" usual refers to a form of pranayama, but the original kriya yoga is defined by Sage Patanajli as the practice of three of the niyamas: tapas, svadhyaya and Isvarapranidhana. To achieve samadhi we practice yoga, steady restraint of mental activities, austerity, meditation, detachment, self study and worship of God. Communion with the Ishta Devata, the chosen God is a key and also Gurudeva tells us: the Deity chooses you.
