Our Saiva Hindu Religion (SHR) teaching program in Mauritius brought some real life experiences to these SHR students. The catalysts arranged a field trip to the seniors home at the Meenakshi Amman Koyil. Here are all the students.

Today program was inspired by SHR catalysts Anand and Anandi (left)

Namaskar Swami Ji, hope all is well…
Quatre-Bornes, Mauritius SHR team consisting of Anand, Anandi and Nuckiren (and me, as a helper) followed up a lesson based on “Helping Elders” with a field trip.
We took the initiative to bring the students to Meenakshi Seniors Home do do some karma yoga.
Gifts were shared to the elderly by the kids and we sang a Ganesha song. We arranged food for their dinner.
The elderly were very happy, as well as the kids.
Ananda and Anandi conduct SHR class to students aged under 11, while Nuckiren teachers those 12 years old and up, (as for me, I’m a helper!)
Food was also served to the students…
Aum Sivaya. Jai Satguru!

The children have their lunch in the home too.
The temple is beautifully maintained.

Unless kundalini is active, the deepest meditative states are not available to us. But to activate kundalini, Gurudeva tells us we must invoke the grace of Lord Ganesha and Lord Murugan. "Yoga is internalized worship which leads to union with God." Experience the inside of you in a profound way. This requires dispassion. The popular term "kriya yoga" usual refers to a form of pranayama, but the original kriya yoga is defined by Sage Patanajli as the practice of three of the niyamas: tapas, svadhyaya and Isvarapranidhana. To achieve samadhi we practice yoga, steady restraint of mental activities, austerity, meditation, detachment, self study and worship of God. Communion with the Ishta Devata, the chosen God is a key and also Gurudeva tells us: the Deity chooses you.
