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.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)

Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
