A two day Saivite Children’s Camp was held on April 24th and 25th in St. Louis, Missouri for the community’s children. The camp was conducted by Rishi Thondunathan. Children were instructed about the Nine Beliefs of Hinduism, A Hindu Primer, Ten Questions about Hinduism and more from Gurudeva’s book, Dancing with Siva. The parents of the children also attended the Camp.
For the field trip, the group visited the Hindu Temple of St. Louis. Satguru Bodhinatha has visited this temple last year.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
