Banu Devi and Chellappa Deva made their yearly display at Phoenix’s Discover India festival, recently. It is always a success for them and the people who come by their table.
“It is very uplifting for us to do this Siva Thondu, explained Banu Devi, “because a lot of people who have been to Kauai or subscribe to Hinduism Today tell us of their experiences and what a great temple and wonderful magazine it is. And we show them and tell them about the newest publications and monastery events. This year, I informed many people of Bodhinatha’s coming to Phoenix in April, something we are all looking forward to.”

"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
