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.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
