Toshadevi Nataraj pilgrimaged for mahasamadhi observances with her children Vanore (right) and Lily. They live on St. Lucia island in the Caribbean (our prayers go out to the island’s residents, who suffered a devastating hurricane just a few days ago). The rest of her family has already visited here in the last few years. The family formally studies the Master Course trilogy and Toshadevi is now an Arulsishya of Saiva Siddhanta Church.

To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
