The monks are enjoying Sadhu Paksha. The normal morning group arati and meditation is replaced with sadhanas performed on one’s own. One such was Gurudeva’s recommendation to “just wander on San Marga as a sadhu with no place to go, sit by a tree and merge with nature.”
"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."
