Vatshalan and sister Ramai Santhirapala pilgrimaged from London to Kauai for Skanda Shashthi . She is an anesthetist and he is in medical school. They both met Bodhinatha in London when they were younger. Their family Amman temple seems to be the one that Indra Sivayogam took Bodhinatha to visit. Ramai was looking online a couple years ago to learn more about Saivism in English and came across our website. She subscribed to Master Course lessons on email, then got her brother to study too. They have finally realized their dream of visiting Kauai Aadheenam.
Bodhinatha signs their small pocket book editions of the trilogy.
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.
