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: "The Difference in Practice of Theism and Monism" (September 3, 2014)
During a puja we're in Theism, to receive the blessings of the Deity. After a puja we can go within our self in meditation, giving up the idea of an external Deity, Monism. Monistic Theism: Advaita Ishvaravada. Advaita means the Monism; Ishvara means the Theism.
In Shum we use two words that relate to that: shumif and dimfi. First, perfect your Theism. Then become a monist. That's called Saiva Siddhanta; one leads to the other.
