Rudra Homa at Murugan Temple in Kajang

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami and Sannyasin Shanmuganathaswami are currently traveling in Malaysia. They recently attended a morning Rudra homa at a Murugan Temple in Kajang. The homa was a fundraising event for Iraivan Temple. Some 500 sponsorships were offered. It was attended by about 1,000 people. There were eight priests chanting Rudram and about three assistant priests. The nakshatra was Ardra and the vibration was high. Satguru attended the last part of the event and then gave vibhuti for an hour and a half. Satguru said that "many of our members attending, commented that they had never attended a Rudra homa before. There is already interest in doing this again next year."

Satguru gave and evening book presentation at Scott Road Murugan Kalamandapam and gave a Keynote presentation "Eight Gems of Wisdom from the Tirukural." A number of Weaver's Wisdom and other books were sold and signed.

"Hatha Yoga, Relaxation, Letting Go" (November 11, 2015)

Set aside personality. Focus on being a spiritual individual. Hatha yoga helps release stress and tension. Use subsuperconscious, not reason, analysis and intellect for understanding in an intuitive way. Let go of negative attachments, flow with the river of life in a natural way. Fulfill the highest dharma. Dissolve the seeds of desire.
