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”
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
