At the second function that Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami attended at the Hari Mandir in Tuna Puna, August 22nd, Trinidad’s minister of education, Dr. Tim Gopeesingh, was present. He attended the entire function. After listening to Bodhinatha’s talk, his turn came to speak. The camera catches the moment when he tells Bodhinatha that he will see to it that Gurudeva’s Dancing With Siva will be placed into all of Trinidad’s public schools. This was the fulfillment of a long-time dream and project of the hosts of this event: Pandit Narendra and Ashwinee Ragoonanan. The moment was extremely auspicious and you see in this photo the instant it happened. Jai!
After the talk, Bodhinatha presents a hard cover copy of Dancing With Siva to the Minister.

"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
