Bodhinatha, Arumugaswami and Sadhaka Nandinatha successfully arrive in Singapore, spent one day with our members there and then as we write today they are in transit to Mauritius where the whole community awaits them.
Bodhinatha writes: “Om Sivaya, everyone,
Morning visit to the Singapore Botanical Garden. Walked through for about two hours. Most spectacular parts were the extensive orchid collection and the occasional, massive, old tree here and there.
Lunch with members and
Evening satsang with members at Kulapati Dohadeva’s home with a few guests as well including our dear friend Rajadhurai.
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul.
