Basanti Mardemootoo from Mauritius is currently visiting her grandparents on Kauai, so she took the opportunity to become a Vidyasishya of Saiva Siddhanta Church during our early morning Siva homa in Kadavul Temple. She voiced the Yama-Niyama Pledge and Ten-Minute Sadhana Vigil Pledge from the Vidyasishya document. The practices given in these two pledges help provide a balanced life throughout the schooling years, especially when away from home in university.
His Holiness Sri La Sri Arunagirinatha Sri Desikar Paramacharya Swamigal, Aadheenakarthar and 292nd Guru Mahasannidhanam of Madurai Aadheenam, in India visited the Spiritual Park on Saturday 26th July morning.
