We began a bright new phase today with homa and delightful talk by Bodhinatha. We are catching up on Bodhinatha’s audio files and you can check out the new link posted on the right today and we will be bringing you his upadesha’s for the month of March and April in the days to come.
Today was a most auspicious one for new soul entered the Saivite Hindu religion. Little two month old, Rohan…. Sendan received his Namakarana Samskara (Name-Giving Ceremony) today.
Father, Jothi and mother Vasuki participate in the Sankalpam. This is their fourth child.
Senthilnathaswami performs the homa today…
The father, Jothi, whispered three times into the baby’s right ear:
Oh child, thou art born of the family Sendan,
So thy name is also Sendan
And thy given name is Rohan Vallavan
Now the father says three times so all can hear:
Oh Divine Ones, we beseech your blessings,
In the sacramental name-giving of this Saivite Hindu soul.
We vow to raise this child according
To the principles of the Sanatana Dharma.
Please bless this child,
Whose family name is Sendan.
And whose given name is Rohan Vallavan
and then writes the name in rice….
The rice tray is passed over the fire….
Finally, an official certificate documenting the name-giving is signed, by Bodhinatha, mother, father and witnesses.

What is happening in the world is supposed to be happening, not because God wants it to happen but because man created it. There is no advantage, as a normal citizen, to get disturbed by violence in the world. Impact your own sphere of influence by being a peaceful person, radiating compassion and concern for others. Take responsibility, realizing karma is the source, our creation, attracting the people we encounter, the experiences we go through.
