We have received some photos from Bodhinatha’s visit to Guyana in August. Here Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami meet the president of Guyana, Mr. Bharrat Jagdeo, who deeply impressed the swamis. “He told us his country needs more philosophy,” Bodhinatha related. “Imagine, a politician asking for more philosophy!”
An article on page 7 of the Guyana Times reports on the visit the following day.
The previous day, the Times had published a picture and report of the two swamis’ arrival.
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.
