Thushyanthan Amirthalingam in the middle with his newly wed (August this year) Renuka Nandini Murthi, from Fiji and mother, Yogamalar Amrithalingam. They are from Calgary.
He is a Level Two Master Course student and has been in touch with Sivakatirswami recently who is handling student communications. His mother is from Jaffna, Sri Lanka, just 20 miles from Alaveddy. Thushyanthan left Sri Lanka when he was only three years old.
We gave the family a tour of the publications facility. They were impressed to find an orthodox Saiva matha and temple side-by-side high tech facilities.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
