Our Church sishyas of the island of Mauritius met at the Spiritual Park on Sunday November 2, 2010 for the Gurudeva Mahasamadhi ceremony. Gurudeva founded the Spiritual Park in 1986 and since then it has grown into a mystically incredible pilgrimage site in this part of the Indian Ocean.
The ceremony started with a pada puja …
Sishyas chanting the 108 names of Gurudeva…
Everyone has the mind concentrated on the names of Gurudeva.

A keynote of Bodhinatha's recent Talk "Advancing Spiritually in the World Today" was presented on that occasion. Here are three items of the keynote.
The insights therein were very uplifting to listeners…
At the end of the ceremony everyone's mind was on Bodhinatha's Talk related to what Gurudeva has said:
"Don't, don't make waves. Try to live life as though you were …carefully writing on water. No ripples, no disturbance, no reactionary residue that has to be faced at some future date…"
The experience of ananda in savikalpa samadhi has to cease before you can have the deeper nirvikalpa samadhi. Agitations of the mind are released by the attainment of shanti in the anahata and vishuddha chakras. Only man can experience Satchidananda, the all pervasiveness of God. Understanding where we are in consciousness. The realization of one's self as a soul is the first stage of Self Realization, then Satchidanada, then Parasiva.
