The Rajamahendran and Nallainayagam families visited Kauai for the first time from Calgary and Vancouver in Canada. They stopped over for one day and then back to Maui where one of their sons is getting married. They both met Yogaswami when very young, and asked Bodhinatha for more details about why Gurudeva came to Sri Lanka in the first place, how he came to meet Yogaswami, etc.
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.
