On the Eastern coast of Sri Lanka there is a ray of light amid all of the difficulties being experienced by the nation. It is the Yogaswami Boy’s Home in Batticaloa. Here the boys perform Guru Puja to Yogaswami in their shrine room.
They are an amazingly productive team, young but so enthused. They are learning Yogaswami’s Natchintanai songs, and they do energetic service in the community.
At the end of the Guru Puja, following Yogaswami’s decree at the KKS Road Sivathondan Nilayam, they remain “summa” silent for a time, discovering the Infinity within.
Offerings made to Yogaswami's paduka, the sacred sandals of the Satguru.
"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."
