Since it is not clear who is Thiru Satkunendran in the other photos here is a photo of him with Yoginathaswami at another event.
A very long time supporter of the Aadheenam and its work. Staunch supporter of Hinduism Today. Thiru Satkunendran is our primary coordinator in Toronto. He generally helped by various other sivathondars such as Sivayogapathy, Siva Markandu depending on the events. Thiru was doing this seva since the day Gurudeva first visited Toronto. He helps us keeping track of each event that we need to attend, driving us there, make sure we return back to hotel on time, feeding us and coordinating various devotees who are eager to feed the monks with unbelievebly tasty Jaffna style cooking. He always stays on the background after doing un believeable amount of sevak. So this time we insisted to put forward his humble seva. Bodhinatha graciously agreed to visit his home. This is the first time this was done since Bodhinatha’s visit to Toronto after Gurudeva’s Mahasamadhi. Below--after the formal welcoming ceremony a Natchintanai song was sung to honor Bodhinatha. The clear white light shinning behind Bodhinatha--cameraman’s excuse for chossing a wrong angle!
A small congregation gathered
Thiru Satkunendran and his extended family. Followed up a marvelous Jaffna lunch of course!
Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being.
