Brahmachari Vel Mahalingum who has never seen snow before in his life and was amazed to feel how cold it was in France, writes us today with this picture:
Aum Sri Ganesha
Prostrations to the holy feet of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami
Aum Namah Shivaya Yoginatha Swami
Thank U for your mail
I am leaving Paris for Mauritius tomorrow. We will keep in touch.
In two or three years I’ll be back on Task Force on Kauai.
Today I have been at the Ganesha Temple.
I sent you a photo with the mail.
I have passed great time in Paris.
Now it’s the end of my trip which began with all of you in the monastery with great moments.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
