The Palani family is one of the most senior sishya families in our fellowship having been with Gurudeva since the early ’70s. They contributed to the monastery by raising a son who is one of our swamis.
They have been helping out with hosting today and had darshan with Bodhinatha this morning.
Satya has helped with many tile projects in our temples through the years and Savitri is a skilled seamstress who has also helped with monks’ clothing. Thank you both for all you do and are!

"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
Bodhinatha reviews the main characteristic of Saivite philosophy and practice with an indepth focus on the four stages of religions evolution, chariya, kriya, yoga and jnana. He highlights how this shows that Saiva Siddhanta is unique and quite from the modern practice of Hinduism as Vedanta
