Rishi Thondunathan came to visit the Ganapati Kulam today. He is doing wonderful work teaching Saiva Siddhanta throughout the Sri Lankan Tamil community. He shared his many projects with Sadasivanatha and said, “All that I am and all that I am doing is because of our Gurudeva.”

"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
