On Saturday 14th November sishyas of Mauritius gathered at the Spiritual Park to celebrate Gurudeva's Mahasamadhi. It was a special moment for everyone present. We bring you as few photos of the ceremony.
Tirthadeva conducted the pada puja while a complete silence pervaded the Ganesha Mandapam.
The Holy Tiruvadi which is carefully kept and worshipped inside the private shrine of the Dharmasala, has been brought into the Mandapam for this auspicious event.

Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
