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.

"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
