When the Satguru is in town, every member of the Saiva Siddhanta Church of Malaysia Mission rush and grab the opportunity to serve their Satguru in all the ways they can. One of its kind is the fund raising for Iraivan Temple’s Floor sponsorship. Gurudeva figurine
Gurudeva was beautifully decorated with color lights!
Kulamata Balaceyon and team made “Muruka” cookies and sold to raise fund for Iraivan.
Our mission members sang beautiful bhajans, thevarams and Natchinthanai songs.
At interval, Astro Vanavil, Malaysia’s premier satellite television network with millions of viewers in Malaysia interviewed Dr Dharma.
Darshan and blessing from Satguru.
Rishipathi Appasamy Kuppusamy too were interviewed by Astro Vanavil.
Kulamatha, Mrs Selladurai, sister Barathy and Selvavathy were all supportive and had an overwhelming devotees attending their booth.
Arvind had this to say on the event, “They were very attentive and had some very good questions posed to Bodhinatha during question time. One question relating to managing karma was how to ‘burn’ bad karma. Bodhinatha pointed that this practice was an advanced practice meant for yoga adepts. A more practical approach would be to do penance under the guidance of a Guru. One Chinese gentleman was even taking down notes on his laptop! So that gives an idea how good the talk was. It was practical and useful.”
Participants moved in single line to receive darshan from Bodhinatha.
Meanwhile Kulapati and Kulamata Darshan and family set up a rudraksha booth with life plant and fruit of the rudraksha seed. Many devotees were so impressed with the blue berry seed.
Delicious light meal were served at the end of seminar.

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
