Today is an auspicious day for Vel Mahalingum. He has been serving in the Siddhidata Kulam and was given a truly incredible job to do about 2 months ago.
For the past 40 years the Aadheenam has collected all kinds of “junk” in the shop department. But, in reality as any shop man knows, it is not necessarily junk. One may have 100′s of valuable items all piled into boxes and shelves. Vel was given the job to “sort out all our bolts and small metal parts.”
When he first looked at it he though it was impossible. But he prayed to Lord Ganesha and had the kind help and supervision of Sadhaka Tejadevanatha who guided him along.
Today he complete the job and everything is carefully stored and marked. So of the hardware retrieved from the mass of chaos are such things as very rare case hardened shoulder carriage bolts worth $15.00 each.
He has retrieved literally several thousand dollars worth of using parts, bolts, screw, nuts.
Now if you need something we know right where to get it!
Thank you Vel.
Mikka Nandri! Merci beaucoups!

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.
