Mauritius organized its first Youth Retreat for the youth of Saiva Siddhanta Church on the 10th to 11th December 2011 at the Blue House at Trou D'eau Douce, on the east coast of the island. The weather was splendid. The main theme of the retreat was on Bodhinatha's newly released Character Building Workbook. Youth participants came forward to present and explain the Character Qualities therein. They also had much fun activities and learned a lot of good things from this retreat. The photos in this slide gives a good picture of all the wonderful things that took place during this youth event. Aum.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
