Rajesh and Radha Narayanan with their daughters Sahana and Shruti are visiting for first time from California. They follow the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharishi. They asked Bodhinatha’s wisdom on how to control the flow of thoughts when we sit to meditate.
They enjoyed the peacefulness of Swayambhu Lingam area
"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."
