Satguru’s Upadesha from Mahasivaratri

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami in Sri Lanka
Visit to Shantilingam at Kopay

On January 5th, 1983 on his 56th birthday, our beloved Gurudeva Sivaya Subramuniyaswami brought a sivalingam from Kauai Adheeanam and installed it in Kopay with his own hands. Gurudeva declared the lingam a "Shanthilingam." This temple was built by the youth of Sri Subramuniya Kottam in 1983. Satguru was with Gurudeva at that installation ceremony in 1983. After 32 years Satguru returned to the Shanthilingam Temple during his January 2015 pilgrimage to Sri Lanka. Satguru performed an arathi to the Shanthilingam and blessed the Kottam children and devotees. Most of the children's parents were the same Kottam youth who helped build the Shanthilingam Temple so many years ago.

Bodhinatha’s Recent Upadesha

Summery: Religion has a oneness in mysticism but has major differences in terms of beliefs and practices. Unrelenting effort, working on the outside with our faults and weaknesses, allows us to manifest actual experience as a mystic, intensifying our purification. We are perfect on the inside. Condition the mind by practicing meditation daily; hold a meditative vibration, a samskara of restraint.
