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.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
