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.

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
