Kulapati and Kulamata SK Moorghen awarding the certificate to new Catalyst Vimala Munian.
All our Kulapaties and kulamatas were invited to offer certificates on that day.
After the ceremony all sishyas sat under the cool shady spots to share a lunch together …
The Guru pujas like Guru Purnima and Guru Jayanthi are special moments for the sishyas because these religious events allow all sishyas of the island to meet and worship together and also enjoy some exciting moments together after the ceremonies.
Our food service table … all home made dishes lovingly brought by the sishyas.

The experience of ananda in savikalpa samadhi has to cease before you can have the deeper nirvikalpa samadhi. Agitations of the mind are released by the attainment of shanti in the anahata and vishuddha chakras. Only man can experience Satchidananda, the all pervasiveness of God. Understanding where we are in consciousness. The realization of one's self as a soul is the first stage of Self Realization, then Satchidanada, then Parasiva.
