Our Mauritius Saiva Dharmasala is perched on the northern edge of the beautiful island nation of the Republic of Mauritius. Our property borders the auspicious place where the Riviere du Rempart meets the sea and faces almost due east. Here one can watch the sun rise overthe amazingly clear multi-blue-hued waters off Mauritius shores and think of the holy Motherland of India that lies beyond the rising sun.
The main facility is some 60 feet or so above sea-level and now has a stairway going down to the shore with a new platform at the river’s edge.
All these extensions were envisioned by Gurudeva years ago and now are coming into manifestation. We want to thank the generous benefactors who are contributing to the project. In this case this huge excavator is helping by working on the area in the river below.
Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being. Vasana daha tantra: Going back and understanding experiences; clearing up the reactions to the past.
