A few photos from Swami’s visit yesterday. Here he meets with the publications team.
We share with him some of our publications and Swami shows the publication that details his institution in Karntaka. It is huge! He is head of 1200 mathas throughout the state. Each one is headed by a Veerashaiva Sannyasin. So each generation they recruit and train 1,200 monks to keep their religion moving forward, and this in one state.
Swamiji visited with each of the kulam members. Acharya Kumarnathaswami show him the recent production of a book we are making for Gurudeva’s Tenth Maha Samadhi.
"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."
