This is the end of a productive phase. Though it was not tour day the temple was very busy. Two groups arrived including a group from Germany.
Anticipation of Bodhinatha’s visit to Mauritius is running high as many members will be receiving initiations on this trip. After years of diligent study and sadhana, these dedicated Saivite souls will hear the Holy Panchakshara Mantra from the lips of the Satguru or be initiated into the powerful practice of personal daily Saiva Atmartha puja which puts them firmly on a foundation for the performance of the deeper raja yoga practices.
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Navami Tithi, Sun One, Sunday, January 24th.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
