He is standing on left. To his right is Kumeraintharen Murugiah from Penang, Malaysia. He is a student of environmental science doing an exchange program that brought him to University of Hawaii Manoa for a couple weeks, then on to mainland USA for few weeks to do field studies
Kumeraintharen has followed us on TAKA for quite some time and dreamed of performing abhishekam to our Narmada Lingam. He briefly met Satguru Bodhinatha in Kuala Lumpur around ten years ago at a Tirumurai competition. He is interested to become a formal sishya.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
