About 40 people attended Bodhinatha’s satsang at the home of Jigisha Patel in Niles, Illinois. In this photo everyone is watching the 2011-2012 annual video update of the monasteries activities. On the screen is the section on the monastery kitchen renovation. Our portable screen works very well for these small groups.
Here is four-year-old Aran, son of Gaurav and Ripla Malhotra. Last year’s visit to Chicago he was pulling Bodhinatha’s carry-on luggage. Now he has graduated to pushing all the swami’s luggage.

"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."
