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

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.

Unless kundalini is active, the deepest meditative states are not available to us. But to activate kundalini, Gurudeva tells us we must invoke the grace of Lord Ganesha and Lord Murugan. "Yoga is internalized worship which leads to union with God." Experience the inside of you in a profound way. This requires dispassion. The popular term "kriya yoga" usual refers to a form of pranayama, but the original kriya yoga is defined by Sage Patanajli as the practice of three of the niyamas: tapas, svadhyaya and Isvarapranidhana. To achieve samadhi we practice yoga, steady restraint of mental activities, austerity, meditation, detachment, self study and worship of God. Communion with the Ishta Devata, the chosen God is a key and also Gurudeva tells us: the Deity chooses you.
