Rudiren Carpanen Pillay is on pilgrimage, all the way from South Africa.
He originally met Gurudeva when he was six-years old in Mauritius and we put in his Arul Sishya booklet “Who introduced you to Gurudeva’s teachings” we put “Gurudeva himself at age six.”
Rudiren grew up, studied hard and is now a lecturer at a university in Durban. In the British system you are not called “professor” unless you have been teaching for at least ten years.
Our members were present when he took the four vratas of Ahimsa vrata (nonviolence), Sakahara (vegetarianism), Paramapara (loyalty to the lineage) and Dasama Bhaga Vrata (tithing 10% of your income to the mission.)
Kulapati Vel Alahan garlands him.
Rudiren will be part of the extended family of Kulapati Kulapati Souria Koomaren Moorghen, Rose Hill Mauritius, in the same area where Rudiren (pronounced “Rudren”) grew up.

"There are three kinds of karma: the karma of all deeds done in our past lives; the karmas we bring into this birth to experience; and the karmas we are making by our actions now."
Karma is an automatic system of divine justice. Karma is self-created destiny; a consequence or fruit of action, karmaphala. By accepting not reacting, performing karma yoga, karma can be softened, mitigated. Seeking the grace of God and guru in the right spirit, the mind focused on the Deity and open to blessings, receiving the intense grace of the Deity in a powerful pilgrimage can actually eliminate karma.
