Sadasivanathswami writes:
Dozens of priests inaugurate the conference in Pittsburgh’s Hindu Jain Temple with a long series of beautiful chants. It is evening and the confluence of servants of the One Great and Holy Lord is palpable.
Chief priest of the Hindu Jain Temple welcomes the swamis from Hawaii and all the priests from around the US.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
