January 17, 1982: Gurudeva’s first visit to the village of Kopay in Jaffna. Boys pulled him in a Morris Minor convertible. “Golden days with a golden guru,” says Rishi Thondunatha, one of the boys on the ropes.

Thank you for sharing the special pictures of Gurudeva taken in Jaffna, Sri Lanka during the 1982-83 inner search. Ingenious/truly original form of transportation provided to Gurudeva! A remarkable Satguru with his true followers!
"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."
