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.
Hindus believe in each individual as a soul, a divine being who is inherently good. We all have a threefold nature: instinctive, intellectual, intuitive. Develop the intuitive/spiritual/soul nature with compassion, devotion, penance. Use the intellect to help subdue the instinctive mind. Guilt is not a part of Hinduism. There is no eternal hell. You have a continuity of consciousness when you transition to the inner worlds. There is no devil, but there are mischievous "asuras."
