Rishi Thondunatha visits Malaysia (Iraivan Illam)

Malaysian devotees were extremely honored to have Rishi Thondunathan and his mother at Iraivan Illam last Sunday.

Rishi Thondunathan is serving the Sri Lankan Tamil community by teaching religious and cultural concepts at summer camps and retreats for children, and comforting the elderly and needy in their homes, as well as hospitals and care facilities. Thondunathan also continues to travel to Sri Lanka periodically to supervise innovations to the Kottam's services as well as visiting and providing services to various orphanages and schools in Sri Lanka.

Rishi Thondunatha and his mother were honored by our most known and respected devotee,"Aunt Sanskrit".

Rishi Thondunatha shared many inspiring stories of our Guru Parampara…

Ardent listeners were inspired by his stories of Kadaitswami..Chellappaswami..Yogaswami..and Gurudeva..

We were blessed to be given vibhuti prasadam by his mother.

One of the Sunday Class students were lucky enough to celebrate his birthday in presence on Rishi Thondunatha..

Jai to our Guru Parampara!!!
