Now that we have been training catalysts, they are beginning their teaching programs around the country in Mauritius.
These young people normally are under a lot of pressure to study, not only at school but to take “tuition” which are more classes and more homework after hours. The boys are having fun “hamming it up” for the camera.
Poobarlene and Kevina Soobramanien report: “The Saivite Hindu Religion class is conducted on a fortnight basis and preferably on Saturdays at 3 p.m. At this time most of the students are free from private tuition. On September 25th we separated the class into two groups: the older and the younger students. We ended up taking that decision after considering the age gap between the two student groups. That is with different concentration span, coping and communication skills.
Poobarlene taught the younger ones while I took care of the older ones. A positive change was observed between the two groups.
"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."
