“The Himalayan Academy is organising an overnight Youth Retreat for the youth of the Saiva Siddhanta Church Mauritius Mission on December 10th -11th at the Blue House, Trou D’eau Douce, on the east coast of the island. Children of Church members, of arulsishyas and youth of MC Level 3, who are attending secondary schools and university are invited to attend the event. The main focus of the retreat will be on empowering our youth to leadership through good character management as taught by Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami in the new Character Building Workbook.”
"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."
