Jai Gurudeva!

Jai Gurudeva!

Today is Gurudeva’s 83 Jayanthi. He is powerfully present with us. Even one of our visitors recently said he could see Gurudeva sitting in the temple!

It is the end of another short four-day phase. We will be on Friday, Sun One, January 8th.

And what a dynamic fours days it has been filled with visitors, pilgrims and positive accomplishments.

 

Brahmachari Vel Mahalingam Goes Home

Our dear brother Brahmachari Vel Mahalingam will be returning home to Mauritius during our retreat. We wanted to take a moment to thank him for his great service during his six-month task force.

He was a valuable member of the team and also an ever bright uplifting spirit.

He made many contributions, serving with the Siddhidata Kulam.

He promises to come back every three years! And we all look forward to having him with us again.
