Sishyas of Mauritius gathered at the Spiritual Park to celebrate Guru Purnima to lovingly honor Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami and humbly rededicate themselves at His Holy Feet.
A special Guru altar was set at one part of the Ganesha Mandapam for this auspicious occasion.
We are posting a first series of photos for this event.
Everyone is immersed in the worship of the Guru during the pada puja.
Sishyas consisting mainly of our members and Master Course students made it all the way to the Park.
Meanwhile outside a bus of visitors just arrived with lots of kids happily running down the property. They were being directed to worship at the small Ganesha shrine…
During the silent pada puja everyone's mind was o the Guru.
Guru Purnima celebration is always a special event for the sishyas. Unlike Ganesha Homa days with all its bustle of activities and large crowds, the Guru puja days are always being observed with discretion and deep faith.
Jai Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami!
Loving offerings placed at the Holy Tiruvadi.
Sheets of the 108 names were distributed among the group and devotees are getting ready to chant the holy names of their Guru.
We shall be posting the next photos of the event in coming TAKA. Till then…Aum.

The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
