Uma and Kaysho Singh are visiting from Mississauga, Ontario.
They gave Bodhinatha an update on the work of Dr. Doobay at the Vishnu Mandir in Richmond Hill. The Anand Bhavan Seniors Residence, just a few steps from the temple, has been completed. This was a concept very dear to our Gurudeva’s heart. He recommended that all temples that have sufficient land should build a seniors residence. This greatly enhances the quality of life of our dear Hindu senior citizens who otherwise might experience a lonely and isolated life, especially in the middle of a cold Canadian winter.
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.
