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.

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.
