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!
Religion is the working together of the beings in the three worlds. The first way we actually experience something of a divine nature, the power and energy in a temple, is our sensitized feeling nature. The Saivite beings in the inner world, Deities, saints, sages, devas, guide and govern, help and protect, shower forth blessings and inspirations to the members of our religious family. All worship Siva.
