Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami visited the headquarters of the Malaysia Hindu Sangam. We don't have all the names of the officers in the photo, but the president, Thiru Mohan Shanmugam is in white behind Bodhinatha and Dr. M. Bala Tharmalingam, the Deputy President is to the far right.
Dr. Bala gave a presentation of a syllabus the Sangam is developing on Hinduism, and then Bodhinatha was invited to give a short talk which was translated by Dr. Bala into Tamil.
Bodhinatha handed out sewing class certificates to a group of students. The Sangam is active in teaching courses in cooking, sewing and other home arts for the local community. Visit the Malaysia Hindu website at www.hindusangam.org.my.
One Response to “Bodhinatha Visits the Malaysia Hindu Sangam Headquarters”
The divine is in everyone. "See everyone as God." Even in the terrorist, even in the criminal, the seed of divinity is there. Over many lifetimes that divinity is supposed to grow. Bring in devotion, that moves out emotion, displaces anger. As Chellapaswami said: "Oru pollaappum illai." We should accept everything that happens because nothing is wrong.
