T. Sivagnanam on pilgrimage from Edmonton, Canada. He is one of the founders of the Maha Ganapathy Temple Temple there. He worked very closely with Gurudeva who helped guide him and others in Edmonton as far back as 1978 before the temple was built. Today the temple is a spiritual powerhouse in the north. Here is the temple web site http://www.mahaganapathytemple.com
And you can go here for a very good account of the early years of the temple from its inception to completion. it explains Gurudeva’s participation when, in 1978, Gurudeva sent a Ganesha murthi to the devotees: http://www.rajahs.net/mgtemple.html
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. 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.
