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.

"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
Bodhinatha reviews the main characteristic of Saivite philosophy and practice with an indepth focus on the four stages of religions evolution, chariya, kriya, yoga and jnana. He highlights how this shows that Saiva Siddhanta is unique and quite from the modern practice of Hinduism as Vedanta
